That defies logic on so many levels.

Basically, the only reason why VA isn't included is because it's not far South enough. As a cultural and physiographic region, the Deep South largely corresponds to the central area of the Black Belt and environs. Tidewater Virginia is on the northern edge of this region.

No that's not obviously the ONLY reason but even if it was how could you argue against it? By that type of philosophy someone might as well say Williamsburg, VA and Jamestown, VA historically exhibit New England characteristics but "aren't part of the region." Corresponds what? Get outta here. "Tidewater" is just a name for low lying coastal/tidal area and that area extends up to northern Virginia and Maryland. And the so called "Black Belt" extends to Delaware, so what. Neither is the "northern edge" of the "Deep South" that edge would be in S.Carolina somewhere.
