    A beautiful patriotic ballad sang by US soldiers during World War Two.

    It's my opinion that the South fought the war in a gentlemanly fashion and did not engage in wholesale war crimes. Do you have any evidence to the contrary?

    The fact that the south fought the war at all is enough to convict them of 600k deaths.

    Nonsense. The USA is not a nation like Ireland. It's a union of states - more like the EU. The various states have the right to withdraw from this union.

    Dixie was invaded. Now yes the foundation of the United States as such is illegitimate but under it's rules at the time Dixie had every right to separate- I'm sure Tadgh Two can fill you in on the details.

    I believe according to US law the states still have the right to cede from the Union.

    "Northern Ireland" is not a state.

    The first time I heard this song it was like an electric shock went through my spine, it still causes me tingles;

    "
    With pale affright and panic flight
    Shall dastard Yankees base and hollow,
    Hear a Celtic race, from their battle place,
    Charge to the shout of "Faugh-a-ballaugh!"
    By the souls above, by the land we love
    Her tears bleeding patience
    The sledge is wrought that shall smash to naught
    The brazen liar of nations.

    The Irish green shall again be seen
    as our Irish fathers bore it,
    A burning wind from the South behind,
    and the Yankee rout before it!
    O'Neil's red hand shall purge the land-
    Rain a fire on men and cattle,
    Till the Lincoln snakes in their own cold lakes
    Plunge from the blaze of battle."

    The world would certainly be a better place if the South had won.

    Carpetbaggers like some unnamed posters here would quickly learn the Yankee Doodle Dixie Rope Dance.

    You mean Southerners used to hang Northern carpetbaggers?

    I think it's a fact that Southern slave owners treated the blacks better than Northern factory owners.

    Loyalists and fleggers are staunch supporters of Dixie. Makes sense really.
