So most of Texas and Oklahoma are not part of the South at large? Very interesting perspective.

Read back through the last couple pages of this thread and you'll see that your position is at odds with most of the other posters as well as the maps that are listed.

Looks like much of Oklahoma was simply western Arkansaw Territory during the Missouri Compromise. I'm glad that Oklahoma is its own territory/state now, however.

Cheers.

Why do you say this? By what criteria are your boundary lines drawn? Just asking...

Personally, I think the map I made by putting together the 2000 US Census Ancestry map with the Telsur Project map of southern speech (red line) shows pretty much where the south begins.

IMO, the south begins once you hit North Carolina.

The Mason / Dixon line is where the South begins.

South Regional Map

I'd agree with this, except I'd include all of Kentucky, and a little more of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. Overall, very accurate description.
