But that isn't a map of the Mason-Dixon line! It's a map of the Southern states as they were traditionally seen in former times. I do think it suggests that DE used to be viewed as part of the South (which doesn't mean "part of the Confederacy"). In the C20 the DE identity gradually shifted to a more Northern one. This thread just refuses to die, doesn't it?

and of course size.

Yep, DC, Maryland, and Delaware are Northeast states, or at the very least "Mid-Atlantic" (a term that varies wildly, especially in the press)

I think we have two threads that are both saying the same thing. Merging them would be too confusing. I'm closing this one and hope the other will die.
