Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

I love this song. It makes me sad and happy. My mother just turned 86 Sunday and she still vividly remembers her Grandpa who fought in the war. So for some, even though far removed by time it still picks a scab but conjures up pride.

There is a lot of sympathy for the Confederacy over here - aside from the usual under-dog thing, my main concern is that these states joined the Union voluntarily with the understanding that they could leave if they wanted to. I guess the rules got changed somewhere along the line.

My all time favorite song from The Band!
