The song "Dixie" written in 1859, was originally a “walk-around,” or concluding number for a minstrel show. It attained national popularity and was later the unofficial national anthem of the Confederacy during the American Civil War (1861–65) and of the South thereafter. Several sets of words, Northern and Southern, were written for the song, but it survives in its version with Emmett’s words. Emmett retired in 1888 but subsequently toured in 1895 with A.G. Field’s minstrel troupe.
