  • The Southern United States—commonly referred to as the American South, Dixie, or simply the South—is a region of the United States of America. The South does not match the geographic south, but is predominantly located in the southeastern corner; Arizona and New Mexico which are geographically in the southern part of the country, are rarely considered part of the Southern United States, while West Virginia commonly is. Some scholars have proposed definitions of the South that do not coincide neatly with state boundaries. Usually, the South is defined as including the southeastern and south-central United States. The region is known for its culture and history, having developed its own customs, musical styles and cuisines that have distinguished it in some ways from the rest of the United States. The Southern ethnic heritage is diverse and includes strong European, African, and some Native American components.
