Thread Name: Folklore: Where is Dixie
Subject: RE: Folklore: Where is Dixie
The "Dix" note was circulated in Louisiana by Citizens Bank and Trust Co., and was valid there for several years. Can't remember the exact dates. The note never was in general circulation in the South, and the derivation of "Dixie's Land" from the currency is not generally accepted.
