I'd say Oklahoma is the midwest. West Virginia who really knows?

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

Personally, I would draw the Northeast like this:
I still lean towards calling Long Island part of the North East, but I can understand your reasoning.

I remember visiting Missouri as a teenager. I had lived in Wisconsin and spent time in Chicago. I expected MO to have a similar feel, afterall it was in the Midwest. To my surprise it was totally different than the Midwest I knew. It seemed so much more Southern to me. I was shocked at the time. So I always understand any controversy about Missouri being a Midwestern state.

I knew someone from OKC and he considered himself from "back in the Midwest". The Census says OK is in the South and I would agree. I knew someone from Enid OK (unlike the guy from OKC) he had such a thick Southern accent I could barely understand him.

Oklahoma is too far South to be Midwest. Its Great Plains, but not Midwest. The Midwest is a northern region. Also, accent-wise, Oklahoma is like Texas.

I don't know how Oklahoma could not be part of the South. Culturally, Texas is probably the closest to Oklahoma, and Texas is considered by most to be, at the least, partly Southern. I know it wasn't a state, but, if my education was correct, it did have slavery and was somewhat supportive of the Confederacy.

Lean? Lol, Long Island is part of the Northeast. Especially the East part, only a few states have land that is further east then Long Island.

It's not these days in the population centers that count. Much of VA is VERY rural and isolated, and that's the Southern part.

I was talking about Oklahoma, since Texas was obviously a state by the Civil War.
