Dixie Victorious?

March 2024

It is ironic that Joshua Zeitz’s article “Dixie’s Victory” (August/September 2002), asserting that Southerners have captured American culture, is preceded on page 12 (“History Now”) by a short report on the need to rename the Confederate Air Force and Wings Over Dixie Air Show to be less inflammatory to sensitive Yankees with money. The politically correct names now are the Commemorative Air Force and the Great Georgia Air Show. Dixie’s victory indeed!
