Super nice and I always will love Dixie. Having been raised in the south I grew up to Dixie and with every parade I ever saw when old glory went by or the played the Star Spangled banner you stood and showed respect but on the other hand if the Stars and Bars went by or the band played Dixie you stood and yelled. Despite what some people will say our history is a mixed bag but in all who truly love this country we are all Americans.

Interesting short; reckon I couldn't have done much better myself. We are reminded however, yet again, that "to the victors go the spoils". To wit, witness the "Federal lens" through which we witness this fun event with heavy preponderance of "blue" troops, president, artillery, equipment, camp-settings and minutia. Yes, yes, the soundtrack acquiesces to the conquered our "Dixie", (and more than a few Irish did fight for the South and sovereignty) but done with a leprechaun brogue? Aw, for the love o' Pete. Lord, help me keep from rolling my eyeballs when I overhear a 'tator say: "Here comes the bad guys..." and keep my composure whilst 'splainin a few things! Still a capital affair, jist my take on the video. There, I'm a done talk man - carry on.
