I think the Hampton Roads, Richmond, and Charlottesville are Northeastern.

I think the Mid Atlantic is a subregion of the Northeast, just like New England.

Personally, I would draw the Northeast like this:

The official definition of the mid-Atlantic is a subregion of the Northeast--NY, PA, and NJ. The contemporary definition is not, and your map just defies logic. Petersburg, South Hill, Roanoke Rapids, Rocky Mount, etc. are Northeastern???? I can't take anything else you say seriously about this subject if that's your perspective.

None of the cities mentioned are Northeastern. From MD south is southern.

Maryland is Northeastern, Missouri is midwestern, texas and florida are both southern, and I'd have to put Oklahoma in the south too. and DC is Northeastern.

The only real hard one too classify is West Virginia.

And richmond is NOT northeastern, and neither are those other virginian cities named. All southern. How can a city which was the capital of the confederacy be northeastern???

I'm confused as to how North Carolina can even be argued to be Northeastern. Apparently if its on the east coast and not full of palm trees and Spanish moss draped trees, its gotta be the Northeast!

Oklahoma is Southwestern.
Missouri north of US 60 is Midwestern.
West Virginia south of Charleston is Southern. The rest of West Virginia is Interior Northeast/Mid-Atlantic.
Florida north of Orlando is Southern.
Texas is Texas, or Texas is Southwestern.

Southeastern OK (Little Dixie) seems Southern, as does east TX at the least.
