People also won't admit, although that is obviously the case, that they have a strict definition of what the south can be. Any deviation from country and rural does not coincide with the sterotypical view of the south.

That's why you have so many people performing all types of mental acrobatics to justify how their city can't be southern because they have fancy sandwich shops, don't act southern.
Do you consider Seattle southern?

The Great Migration put quite a bit of strain on the North.

The reasons I have for not considering Maryland southern are as much, if not more, to do with its landscape, location, and general climate. The modern culture being more like the north is just an aside.

There are parts of the northeast and Midwest that culturally feel southernesque but are certainly not part of the south.

With few exceptions (most notably New Orleans), it's not the same story in the South where immigration on a larger scale is mostly a newer phenomenon.

It's not located in the south, so no.
