American South

The American South or South is an informal term for the Southeastern portion of the United States of America. More of a cultural than a precise geographical term, it usually refers to the states which formed the Confederate States of America, whose attempt to secede led to the American Civil War. Sometimes border states such as Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, Missouri and Oklahoma are also included.
