There are different definitions of the Northeast, which could change all the time due to different people's opinions. Some say they are nine states, which would make NJ the southernmost state, some say eleven states, which would make MD the southernmost state, others extend to West Virginia and/or Virginia. But there is a dispute on the Northeast's southern border. It could be the MD/PA border (Mason-Dixon Line), the Potomac River, the James River or the VA/NC border (Missouri Compromise Line). I even heard one person even claim the Delaware River and Delaware Bay as the southern border, which sounds weird to me.

Which state do you think is the southernmost northeastern state? Only one choice per person.

Very wise, Kathryn. Me either. Most of us learned all of this in school, but that is beside the point on CD.

LMAO. You're right. We all learned in school that the answer is Maryland. Just because someone argues the loudest and longest doesn't change the answer. Just vote and move on.

My only question is, (then I will stay out if this), why this OP cannot get it in his/her mind that Virginia and W Virginia are Not Northeastern states.

West Virginia is the most Northern of the Southern States, The most Southern of the Northern States, The Most Eastern of the Midwestern States and Most Western of the Eastern States...

And having lived in West Virginia for 5 years, I agree.

Nah. I know a girl from WV and she has a southern accent thicker than people I've met from Atlanta, Raleigh, and Richmond through work.
