I find it ironic that people consider Kentucky Southern- when it wasn't even part of the Confederacy. But I did think the people were nice. It just didnt feel Southern to this Virginian

What do Y'all think?
By the way... comparing Kentucky to Ohio is grounds for a fight LOL How much of Kentucky have you even been to when you mention "the majority of Kentucky"? You only mentioned Louisville and E-town.

To me, most of Kentucky seems decidedly Southern, especially the Jackson Purchase. In fact, far western Kentucky seems more like west Tennessee than it does the rest of Kentucky. And west Tennessee seems more like northern Mississippi than it does the rest of Tennessee. My mother is from the Jackson Purchase, and anyone who hears her voice will realize quickly that she is from the South.
This is very true.

I do not consider Northern KY to be Southern at all. I also feel the same about the Louisville area, it's more Midwest.

The Fan district, Richmond VA:


Old Louisville:

Old Louisville:

and both claim to have the largest Victorian home district. Interesting!

No Baby, I'm not LOL Anyway, this is the last thing I am going to post about this and then I will no longer participate in these discussions. All it does is get me all fired up and that is not how I want to be. I know what I am, I know what Kentucky is and will no longer worry about what outsiders think. Here ya go:

Is Kentucky a Southern state? The Bluegrass and Beyond
