DANIEL D. EMMETT. Signature: "Daniel D. Emmett.", 3½x2 card. Daniel Decatur Emmett (1815-1904) is best known as the composer of "Dixie". The song, which he wrote in 1859 as the finale to a minstrel show, gained national popularity, became the unofficial anthem of the Confederacy and was played at the inauguration of Jefferson Davis on February 18, 1861. Emmett, who is credited with co-founding the Virginia Minstrels, one of the earliest minstrel troupes (1843), had begun his musical career as a fifer in the Army at the age of 17. In 1858, the year before he wrote "Dixie", the talented drummer, violinist, flutist and singer joined the Bryant Minstrels, which enjoyed enormous popularity in New York City. Although he retired in 1888, Emmett later toured with A.G. Field's minstrel troupe in 1895. Slightly soiled at upper left corner and lower blank margin. Fine condition.
