Here's how it goes; The ones that were slowest to follow SC in secession are the most Yankee-fied.

Lets see...I believe Georgia seceeded 4th...

Give SC 25-30 years before it turns to NJ 5.0

Some people in places like Indiana might not KNOW they live in the south but that is because people in the south are uneducated.

(italicized part is not serious)
The Mason Dixon Line is not Interstate 70 in Missouri by a longshot...the Ohio River is the approximate cultural divider between the North and South...most of Missouri lies well north of the latitude where the Ohio meets the Mississippi. The south to me is anything below U.S. 60 west of the Mississippi, and east of the Mississippi anything below the Ohio River. True Southern culture does not really above far Southern Missouri.

My definition of the north would include MD, DE, and DC. I mean DE is the suburbs of Philly! When people say "the north" or "east coast" I think it refers to the Northeast, not the Midwest so much. However western PA/NY tend to feel more Midwestern than Northeastern.

Most of Missouri is actually north of the Mason Dixon line. The state lies almost entirely north of the latitude of the Ohio River.

South = VA (except NOVA), southeastern W VA, KY, TN, AK, LA, east TX, MS, AL, GA, north FL, SC, NC. I'm on the fence about southern MO and southeastern OK.
