Product Description
In my 'kaillion years' of teaching middle schoollers, I have always found the story about the term "Dixie" to be very interesting. I know that they story may be just a myth but it does not stop me from at least passing it along.

In Louisiana there are millions of myths, tall-tales, ghost stories, etc. From Jean Lafitte to Marie Laveau to Chloe to Huey Long to the Loup Garou, they all speak of a 'story once told' which gives flavor to the history of Louisiana.

I have always been the "… the Story Teller! I love my state history and I love telling students the back-stories of how we got where we are" plus the stories 'behind' the stories, 'the rest of the story' so to speak.

I want my students to make up their own minds as to 'do they believe or not', call me out if they don’t believe then we get to have a nice long, in-depth discussion which lets me know they are really THINKING about what we are talking about.
History is not just what the book says. There is so much more, and I want my kids to understand to NEVER take everything on 'face value', there is always something behind that story.
