Curious how well y’all think this guy got it right.

I think it's safe to say that all of Kentucky and West Virginia would be considered "upper south".

You don't hit yankees till north of Cincinnati

I think the Map is well done. I think Kentucky is more Deep South. North Car is gone! Nashville has been invaded as well.

I was laughed at for ordering “sweet” tea at a restaurant in Louisville. Was brought iced tea with sugar packets on the side.

Some of the counties in central and south Florida are dead wrong. You can almost judge who is what by population.

“Yankeedom” needs to dip down into DC and NOVA

re: How Accurate?: Map of the South
Nothing due-west of Little Rock qualifies as "deep south". Fort Smith is historically and culturally southwestern.

Curve that line towards Texarkana when it gets to LR.

The "upper South" goes way to far north into Missouri. Maybe 2 rows of counties, and that's it.

I want to believe you, but I don't. Not in Kentucky anywhere.



And Georgia needs to be kicked out of the south.

I would add East Texas and SE Oklahoma.

The "deep south" divide in Arkansas is much more East/West than North/South. Seems like they picked an arbitrary line. Memphis is more deep south than Little Rock

The Yankee line should be north of I-10

I don’t know what Georgia is after this last election. Maybe Atlanta metro area could be carved out as something not “Deep South”.

Little Rock and Memphis are the same. When you go past little Rock going East towards Memphis, you hit the Arkansas delta. That is getting into the deep South.

Looks pretty accurate, especially compared to most of these types of maps we usually see. South Louisiana needs its own label though.

This. Those areas are VERY much southern.

Other than that, it's reasonably accurate.

About as deep south as you can get really. Get into the ouachitas and ozarks and it's different. The land is a lot less suited for farming, and as a result slavery was less common. Deep south culture doesn't exist where slavery didn't have a strong foothold, since it really developed out of a mixing of Irish and and African cultures

re: How Accurate?: Map of the South
I’ve always thought of Kentucky as Upper South, so the map is accurate for the Commonwealth. I would limit the Transition Zone to the metropolises of Cincy and Louisville, however. All rural counties are heavily southern.

Would say the Delta is the only part of Arkansas that is Deep South.
