Southern United States
The "Southern United States" (also known as The Southern States or "The South" among Americans) is a term for the Southeastern part of the United States. All Confederate States were in the South, but not all Southern States joined the Confederacy. The States farthest to the south are called the "Deep South". Most of the South is a land of long, hot summers. Winters are mostly short and cool. There is abundant rainfull. This combination gives the South a long growing season.
The States that make up "The South" are usually:
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
- West Virginia

Demographics[change | edit source]
Except for Florida and Texas, most of the South did not have as many immigrants arriving from other countries as the rest of the United States did, in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Most of the people in the South are of English, Scottish, or Irish ancestry, or the descendants of African-American slaves. Some Southerners identify themselves as being of "American" ancestry.
