There has been much debate about what the South really is.  I don't mean the direction, I mean the geographical boundaries of a way of life.  Where do things like chicken fried steak, sweet tea, and good manners stop being weird, and start being expected?  It has been the subject of many a debate, especially when it comes to Texas.

I will admit that Texas is it's "Own Thing," but I think that each and every state could claim the same thing.  For example: "We're Georgians (insert state here) first, and Southerners second!"   Basically, I was born in Texas - but I am a Southern Gentleman.

We've created 3 distinctly separate maps below.  If you would be so kind as to vote on the correct one, we'd be much obliged.
