During the first three Friday nights in December each year, the Museum and Library of Confederate History in Greenville, South Carolina, present “Christmas in Dixie.” The event is free and open to the public. The evenings are filled with music, stories for children, food, decorations, costumes, arts, and crafts of the un-reconstructed Southland and weapons of the War for Southern Independence.
The musical centerpiece for the occasion is the museum’s own rare Piano/melodeon dating to the early to mid 1800s. Musical talent is provided by members and friends of the 16th Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, Sons of Confederate Veterans, owners and operators of the Museum and Library of Confederate History.
The 16th Regiment suspends their regular meeting on the fourth Thursday in December and holds a Christmas party at the museum and library along with family members.
