Albert Pike Sheet Music of "Dixie"

Here is a rare piece of Sheet Music showing Illustrious Albert Pike, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction as the Composer of the great Civil War song "Dixie".  It is dated 1899.  It is very surprising to see a picture of him dressed in his Scottish Rite regalia in connection with this piece of sheet music.  Pike was a loyal supporter of the Confederacy and this song became a battle hymn for the southern cause.
