About This Quiz

There is the south, the deep south, and then there is northern Florida. While many Yankees may think that all of the south is the same, anyone who has lived there knows differently. No one would confuse Atlanta with Mobile. A South Carolinian's football loyalties may not go over well in Mississippi. Even barbecue, that most sacred southern sacrament, varies from state to state.

Local history also plays a role in what sets the culture for any given southern state. Some southern states bear terrible scars from their involvement in the Civil War, while others remained fairly untouched. Some southern states played major roles in the Revolutionary War, while others weren't even one of the 13 original colonies. Some states even split for political reasons, not from the union, but from each other.

Every southern state has its own character, just as every man, woman, and child does. Just because you're a southerner doesn't mean you should live in Kentucky, or Georgia, or North Carolina. How southern are you, really? Take this quiz, and we will gauge exactly how southern you are, and in what way you are southern. In this way, we will pinpoint which southern state you should move to.
