Hello, I live in NC along the SC border. I've heard a lot of Virginian's consider themselves southerners. Some people say the potomac is what divides the south from the midatlantic. What do y'all think.

Usually, north of Richmond is considered "North"...but most folks under DC think of themselves as "southerners"...who knows?

I live in Fredericksburg, and we had both the Union and Confederate forces here.....the SOUTH held tight in the Civil War, in Fredericksburg!

But then got thoroughly trounced in their ill-advised adventure north into Gettysburg, PA! (Where I went to college, no bias )

I used to say the Rappanannock but nowadays I'm thinking the James. Definitely not the Potomac as most of NoVA might as well be on the Schuylkill.

Personally I think the area between Richmond and Washington DC is the border. With a fair mix of both Southerners and non-Southerners. There is no definite line in the sand so to speak.

The Mason-Dixon is the generally accepted dividing line; it runs along the southern border of Pennsylvania and then drops down the western border of Delaware. Check out theMason-Dixon line link:

Maybe 50 years ago. That concept's a bit outdated now.

The Civil War. 1861-1865. Do you think we could we get over this now? Nobody alive today had a dog in that fight. You'd think it was the Sunis versus the Shia to hear some people talk.
