He spent time at Fort Dix during WWII. He said that he & his friends liked South Jersey & thought it was like North Carolina. He said that some of his friends met girls in South Jersey & settled there after the war.

I'm not going to continue this, because I still feel that you are looking for an arguement. Go take a drive on Rt 13 on Delmarva, as others have posted.
I'm not looking for no argument? I'm trying to understand you. I live in rural MD and have been here for some time now so I think I got a feel of the mid atlantic. I'm telling you that I grew up in Bama and rural NC feels extremely similar. I'm asking a simple ?

I worked in Baltimore County for several years & rented in Baltimore County for a while & Carroll County for a while. It had a different feel. If you think that you know everything about the MidAtlantic, that's fine. You don't. It's a very varied region. You've seen other people cite locations in this thread, but since you have your mind made up, you just want to keep after me, but God-forbid that you check those other places out. Ask the other posters who cited places in the MidAtlantic. Maybe you'll like their answers better.

NC is still Southern, but just like Virginia, it also is Mid Atlantic. It is both at the same time and harmoniously.

Thank you. I have tried to say this with little success. Southerners tend to see what is Southern. People from the MidAtlantic tend to see that. By nature, the MidAtlantic blends what is Northern & Southern. Sometimes it is simultaneous, but sometimes it's one or the other.

7th grade NC history class said it is historically Mid Atlantic part of the South. then elsewhere you have the deep south, etc.

If the concern is that more transplants are moving to the state and changing the personality and character of the state; i guess this is possible. Hope not. I like my homestate.

That's a problem. Considering I was taught that NC was the south. Not once did I hear them say anything about NC being simultaneously both. That's from my NC history class. Obviously one teacher is wrong. Could be mines could be yours but for me and what I've been taught NC is the south, not both. My opinion and i'm born and raised in NC.

Again, you choose to come after me. 2 NC natives posted on the same page, saying the same thing that I have said. Did you choose to challenge them? No. Did you quote the NC native who I was responding to? No. Could it be that you are trying to intimidate me? I am posting to tell you that I am not interested in attempting to discuss this topic with you anymore. You have trailed me from thread to thread trying to tell me that I am wrong. This thread has plenty of other posters who have the same opinion as me, but you chose to try to take me on again.

By the terms of service, you are allowed your opinion as I am allowed mine. I have tried to explain myself to you, but have never attempted to ram my views down your throat. There is a whole thread of people who share my view. Pick someone else.

That's a problem. I was never taught that and i'm a native N Carolinian. Obviously one of our teachers is wrong. Not sure who it is but in my opinion its just the south.

When looking at all these post on every single one of these is NC mid-atlantic threads NC being labled the southeast has been by far the majority. All the rest is wishful
