No short answer to this one! Get comfortable....
It's the heart of Missouri, blooded of three,
Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee.
It's a tall spare man on a bluegrass hoss,
It's sugar-cured ham without raisin sauce.
It's coon-dog, coon, persimmon tree,
It's a son or brother named Robert E. Lee.

In other terms, it's the very essence of the old south- "More Dixie than Dixie". The physical boundaries are always in dispute but it is referred to in 3 categories

1) Heart of Little Dixie: Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Howard, Monroe and Randolph counties. (2) Outer Little Dixie: Carroll, Chariton, Cooper, Lafayette, Ralls, Pike and Saline counties. and...(3) Border Little Dixie: Clay (home of the James boys), Cole, Jackson, Lewis, Lincoln, Macon, Marion, Moniteau, Pike, Platte and Ray counties.

Unreconstructed, it rares and bites,
At touch of a rein that would curb it's rights.
It's "Come in stranger, draw up a chair",
there ain't no hurry, we'll all get there!!!!

The "Little Dixie" I am thinking of is an area north and west of St. Louis, along the Missouri River Valley in the heart of the state. It was settled by folks mainly from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia.

Happy Thursday! Got a long question for you today, and if you get it correct, I'll give you 2 points!

Even as Lee was withdrawing his army on July 4th, 1863, General Pemberton was surrendering Vicksburg to Grant. The people of the city were on the verge of starvation, the Union bombardment continued anabated, and there was no choice but to surrender. How long would it be before the citizens of Vicksburg, Mississippi, celebrated Independence Day again? (I'm looking for a specific year)

edited by Ami to change raggedrebles score to the correct score since he answered Tuesdays question correctly, but was never given credit.
