What states make up what Americans consider “The South”? It’s not so much climate as it is culture. I live in Kentucky, which was a slave state before the Civil War, but stayed with the Union. The people here speak with an accent that is more hillbilly than southern drawl. Yet we drink our tea extra sweet and keep electing Tea Party politicians. A majority would classify Kentucky in the South, others have called us the Midwest, while the term “Appalachian” makes the most sense -yet that classification doesn’t appear on most cultural maps. But what about Delaware? Maryland? Oklahoma? Vox is conducting a survey to see how people think of the region we know as the South. You are asked to click on the states on an interactive map that you would call the south. When you submit your opinion, you’ll see how it compares to others who have done the same. You can also click on individual states to see what the responses were.
