With Being South of the Mason-Dixon, I belive that Maryland is a Southern state by geogrophy and history. If you disagree I highly hope you will debate.

Mason-dixon, Shasion-shckson. More land is south of it than land north of it. That, and it is north of D.C. It is either central or northern. NO, it is NOT a state far enough north to be considered a New England state. I see no reason to call it a southern state. P.S. What is the point of this debate anyway? THE CIVIL STUFF IS OVER AFTER OBAMA GOT ELECTED PRESIDENT.

By the US Census Regions. See where Maryland is.


We all know this tree, the Bald Leaf Cypress. Its found in Southern Swamps and makes its range North Into the Delmarva

Southern Maryland and the Delmava have southern accents.

This is apart of the Maryland state flag that was used as the secessionist flag during the Civil War. Maryland's state song talks about Lincoln being a tyrant, Northern scum and secession witch was also written during the war.

Con said civility is over now that Obama is elected. That's exactly why I don't vote for Democrats. I believe in being civil to people.

Besides, if you look at a map of the continental US, Maryland is slightly north of the center line.

Being geographically south is one thing. The culture in Maryland today is not "southern".
