Thread Name: Origins: Dixie
Subject: RE: Origins: Dixie
Emmett's "In Dixie's Land" was printed by Firth, Pond and Co., New York, 1860. Since this was a song sung by Bryant's Minstrels, it may have been performed earlier.

We had a thread on this. Gargoyle found reference to the fact that the song was performed April 4, 1859, in NYC. Thread 54140: Origin of Dixie
