Starting with after the Civil War, then with the Great Migration, anything making Maryland, Baltimore, and D.C. southern vanished. Period. Fact. You and Slyman need to get your heads out of the 1800s...this is the 21st century. A lot has changed.

DC is not very southern at all. Its sorta northeastern so I would categorize as so. It truly is a separate area that straddles north and south though. I think Baltimore is the first truly northeastern city (but still with some borderline attributes. I think Richmond starts the southern-ness (counting 500K+ metros). I would associate Richmond more closely with Raleigh or Nashville than DC, even though its much closer.

I guess some people will continue to ignore the facts you clearly presented. Having been to both Washington DC and Baltimore many times I can honestly say that I did not feel like I was in a Southern city but still in the Northeast. As a native Philadelphian these cities just don't feel Southern to me. Also in reality I never really heard anyone refer to Baltimore and Washington DC as Southern cities as oppose to a Northeastern city until went on city data.

Your opinion which is not a Fact and Yes Baltimore is Southern....

Just because you don't care for Maryland does not mean that Maryland is not in the South.......

Spewing BS is not name calling....

Throwing Tantrums while using the words like troll and three stooges are in the definition of Name calling.......

And yes Baltimore is a Southern City......

Sorry but thats the way it is and that is how it is going to be.....

Negative.......

There are parts of Baltimore that resembles Philly and Boston but that is also said about Alexandria, Richmond, Norfolk, and Newport News.....

Dude Miami, Richmond, Norfolk, Parts of Atlanta, and Houston don't feel like southern cities.....


You just do not know Maryland and DC I am sorry but thats it you neeed to spend more time in Maryland and DC....

Better yet you need to travel to other parts of Maryland to get a better understanding of Maryland being a Southern State.........

What are you talking about? Of course they do!

I've been to Maryland many times and I can honestly tell you it doesn't really feel like a Southern state. Also just because an area of the state is rural does not mean it has to be Southern.

Like I said a hundred times "if Maryland was such a Southern State it would have joined the Confederacy just like the other Southern states did. So the conclusion is that Maryland was Never A Truly Southern State To Begin With!

Really? You can't possibly be serious with the last part your statement. Ok maybe Alexandria since its only six miles from Washington DC, but you must be joking about the rest of them right?

Alexandria is essentially part of D.C. and the southern tip of the Northeast. Richmond, Norfolk, and Newport News have never been said to resemble Philly or Boston...they are completely different from either Baltimore or D.C. in that they have Southern culture, demographics, and have never even once deviated from the south, before or after the Civil War.
