Being from New England, anything south of New Jersey is noticeably SOUTHERN.

Sorry, my mistake. TExas is a confederate state. I guess though i've always felt that they were kind of just getting started. I've even heard Texans say that while they were involved in the Civil War, they were just coming off of the War with Mexico, and really were fighting more for Texas than the confederacy. Anyways, I wouldn't group all of Texas with the South. Dallas and Houston could be, but San Antonio and Austin are the gateways to the Southwest. Also, if anyone thinks a place like Amarillo or El Paso is Southern, your'e crazy. Texas is almost like 3 or 4 states in one in some ways.

How about this as far as Yankee goes. I nce worked with a man who was originally from Connecticut, and he told me that as far as he was concerned, only people from New England are truly Yankees. He said that New Yorkers for example, while still Northern, were not Yankees in his mind. I later found out that the term originally applied to only New England.
What I consider Northern: All of New England, NY, PA, NJ, DE, and most of MD, the Wheeling area of WV, Washington, DC, OH, IN, IL, MI, WI, MN, MO, IA, KS, NE, and the Dakotas.
What I consider Southern: southeastern MD and most of WV, VA, the Carolinas, GA, FL, KY, TN, AL, MS, LA, AR, OK. and most of Texas. I would consider the Trans-Pecos region of TX part of the West. I would include San Antonio in the South, but not too much further west of there.

The eastern panhandle of WV is not northern, unless you want to include the neighboring counties of Virginia as northern.

I think it would be fair to place the middle of PA in the South

Yeah you are correct. Not sure why I put pandhandles instead of panhandle.
