"Dixie Pashas 1861"

Randy Bond - 13May10 7:06PM

Several months before the first shots of the American Civil War were fired, two cotton planters from South Carolina tour the wonders of Egypt with their wives. A local photographer snaps their photograph as a souvenir to take back home to a soon to be divided nation. Ironically during the war, Egyptian cotton would replace that of the American South as the staple for the English textile mills of Manchester.
