    The ignorance? Someone please explain. It WAS The Band's intention to shed a sympathetic light on the south, despite the outdated outlook on race at the time that this song is set. No one is saying "yay, slavery!". It was wrong and everybody knows that now. People just need to take a step back and understand context without jumping to absolutes like "this is racist". It's political correctness gone mad! The only way we can improve society is to empathize with those we disagree with, and understand why they do what they do so we can figure out how to change collective minds.

    There was nothing romantic about the ante-bellum South. Except for the poor black folk, the next largest population were poor white folk (sharecroppers). It was only romantic for the few at the top. Anyway, it still is nice music.

    I love the pro-rebel POV of this song. Nothing else can make me sympathize with the confederacy, and despite the fact that the confederacy were in favor of slavery, this song helps paint them as normal people rather than solely racist bastards. It's a beautiful sentiment, if you ask me.

    Oh, hey Druid66, as I said, I love the song, but there's ZERO question the song is about the burning of Atlanta by Sherman. Who uses it for what, I don't know, and don't even know if it's relevant. It's just the verses which scream pro-rebel civil war ("honey come quickly, there goes Robert E. Lee"??? Can it be more obvious?) which baffle me. Either way, it's still a great song.

    I belileve it was Ronnie Hawkins who started this group; he was from Arkansas, if I recall. Didn't anti-war protestors during the Vietnam War love this song? It's too sad to be a "Southern pride" type of thing, if you ask me.

    Before I say the rest, I want everyone to know I totally love this song, and Robbie Robertson is one of the all time greats. That said, I find it ironic, even bizarre, a Canadian-American group would sing about the American Civil war, on the Pro-Rebellion, Pro-Slavery side.
