Oh OK so you don't believe that Kentucky and West Virginia are Southern States either?????????

They are both Southern and are not generally considered Northeastern or Mid-Atlantic states, though some small parts of West Virginia might be considered part of the Mid-Atlantic.

So Pretty much you have not made any valid points to prove that Maryland not being "Southern"....

And despite your opinion Maryland is a Southern state......

Here the thing though, the census isn't perfect and it seems like that is the one big you rely on. We all know the Census uses the very flawed Mason-Dixon line approach, which I had already proven it' flaws. If the Census told you cows can fly, would you believe that as fact because they said it was official?

Umm Hmm and Maryland is still a Southern State despite your non-perfect opinion........

And it's also part of the Mid-Atlantic region with includes Northern states like Pennsylvania, New Jersey, etc. Southern state or not Maryland is still culturally tied to what southerners call "Yankee States".

And again your proving my point that you are speaking based on opinion that will Never Dictate Against the Fact that Maryland is a Southern State......

Maryland is not a Northern State and thats the way it is despite your opinion.......

And I also have a problem believing that you have ever step foot into the state of Maryland or else you would not type the words you're typing......

I find that the Northeast and Midwest, both of which make up the North, generally feel no connection to each other. Chicago and NYC, for example do not share a sense of kinship as Northern cities like Atlanta and New Orleans do as Southern cities. There is definitely a shared kinship between Midwesters and to a smaller degree, Northeasterners. With Northeasterners, I see a definitefeeling of unitybetween New Englanders. I have noticed a similar unity between New Yorkers, especially New Yorkers living in other states.
That's true. I was mostly talking about the Northeast since Northerners like myself tend to separate that.

I think it's a rural/urban divide. People in Delaware are very friendly too.

I've lived in Delaware for six years (and my parents still live there). I'm pretty confident when I say it's not Southern.

In astronomy the point of intersection of mathematical horizon with the celestial Meridian, the nearest to the South pole of the world. The same direction to midday the sun, called sometimes also noon.(In Slavic notation) some places means the South of the country In the Geographical - side light opposite the North, coincides with the direction to the South pole. May be and in historical terms, a particular place. That's out of here I think, and you need to proceed.

Sure along the I-95 Corridor may not feel southern but along the US Highway 13 towards Dover does feel Southern.....
