Thanks to Tom Daniel for shooting me this video. This was made when the History Channel had real history in its program lineup. Charlie Daniels narrates the segment. For those looking to read more into this subject, please read David Hackett Fischer’s seminal Albion’s Seed: Four British Folkways in America (America: a cultural history) and Cleanth Brooks’s The Language of the American South. Both are top notch.
