Your side of Maryland doesn't act like it. Maryland should be split in 2, the DC area and the Baltimore area. Its hard saying Baltimore is southern culturally when it very rarely ever even resembled the south but thats not the case for the DC area.

I propose West Virginia or Virginia take the DC area suburbs/counties from Maryland and Maryland combine with DE. While I think of DC as the south, I do not see Baltimore as the south.

Where do you think the Baltimore area changes into the DC area? I say around Laurel.

I agree, northern PG. I have to say I don't agree with Baltimore being in the south, its much more like Buffalo, Rochester, Philly, Jersey than is like DC, Richmond, Charleston, Hagerstown, VA Beach, or Norfolk but being in the south is not a bad thing. My favorite region in the U.S. with Atlanta, Dallas, DC, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, Nashville, Austin, Orlando, Tampa its a very beautiful, variety packed region IMO. I only like the Northeast for NY and New England, the rest is uninteresting, boring, and imo dumpy

I guess you have never been to South Baltimore, Anne Arundel County, and Harford County....

Just because Baltimore(East and North) resemble parts of Philly, and Boston does not take away from the Fact that Baltimore is in the South....

Actually its the other way around: Maryland takes back/retrocede DC(since the folks in DC keeps pushing for statehood rights), Maryland takes Northern Virginia, and the Federal Government throws out the anti-Growth Left Wing Extremist Democrat Lawmakers(Governor, County Council Groups, County Executives/Commissioners, and state Legislators) that have plagued Maryland's Economic and Business Growth for the past 40-50 years....

You have things mixed up which makes me believe that you are not from Maryland and you have not traveled to different parts of Maryland....

If you really knew about Maryland instead of you talking about the Baltimore area being less southern than the Maryland/DC Suburbs you would have said the opposite because Montgomery County is more Northern Like than the Baltimore area due to Northern Transplants(along with Jews and Catholics) relocating to Montgomery County and the development resembles parts of Westchester County, NY and parts of Nassau County, NY while Anne Arundel County(Baltimore area) is very southern with most of the population remaining Conservative and Annapolis resembling the Charleston, SC area and Savannah, GA area.

So basically you intentially segregate Baltimore from the rest of the South because you personally don't like Baltimore.......

OK, I get it, but that still does not take away from the fact that Baltimore is Southern.........

And ain't nothing is going to change that despite the fact that there are Northern Transplants in Baltimore but so is Atlanta, Charlotte, and Miami........

I have a question: How is it that Baltimore was once considered southern, but AFTER the great migration, baltimore is no longer consider southern?? It's not Baltimore get a lot of transplants like DC does. Baltimore has always been very insular in that regard.
