Dixie is another word for the South. The South is made up of the following states that made up the confederacy:
Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia and Florida. Kentucky is usually considered part of the South as well, even though it didn't secede from the union. Being a native Texan, I can tell you that the South is a great place to live if you're a normal person. I love the South.
The South is Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas and sometimes Florida and Oklahoma. Texas is especially the South cause we embrace our Southernness without shame. The South rules.
