Personal definitions aside, Baltimore is absolutely in the Southeastern United States.

Baltimore is nearly as far north as Atlantic City, New Jersey. It is further north than both Cincinnati and St. Louis.

It is further north than roughly a third of the state of Illinois.

Mid-Atlantic is not mutually exclusive with with either the Northeast or the South.

New York is a Mid-Atlantic state in the Northeast. Virginia is a Mid-Atlantic state in the South.


This is a map of the Mid-Atlantic states that uses two shades to represent which Mid-Atlantic states are in the Northeast and which are in the South.

At this point it seems as though the Virginias, Delaware and Maryland ought to be their own small region like New England is. :P

New Jersey appears to be geographically partly southeastern as well then.

Patently ridiculous.

If any part of New Jersey is southern, we've lost the plot entirely. Maybe the whole US is the south. Canada is the true north after all.

One state doesn't shape the entirety of a whole coast, let alone the whole country. If MD is in the south, and parts of NJ are south of MD....I don't need to keep going do I?

Baltimore is not southern, in Tennessee anyway we consider that quite far north. It’s funny you hear that claim of Baltimore being southern as much as you do. It is part of the mid Atlantic or the general Northeast. This topic is similar to the “Pittsburgh is in the Midwest” discussion. Geography is what it is.

Maryland isn't part of the south though.
