The word is a derogatory term used to describe Americans by the Brits, Canadians, Australians and the like; but in the USA used to define an American from the Northern States in the USA, such as New England and the Mid-West.

It was most notably used to describe to the Federal Solders and other Northerners by the Confederates during the Civil War Era. Even though some foreigner’s refer to all American’s as Yankees, does not make it so. Call a Southerner a Yankee and he’ll think you’re either just plain dumb or that you are trying to pick a fight.

The characteristics often associated with a stereotypical Yankee are shrewdness, thrift, craftiness, rudeness, arrogance, and loudness.

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.
To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.
To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.
To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.
And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast

A term and nickname created by Southerners and Confederate Civil War soldiers for a person who is from the North (Midwest/Northeast). It was especially given to Union soldiers who fought in the American Civil War, usually having to go into into The South in order to engage the enemy in combat. The Union forces invading Southern territory and also incidents where a few groups of soldiers pillaged and destroyed property and people's lives resulted in making this nickname derogatory by some.
Northerners and Midwesterners get called "Yankees" a lot by many Southerners.

Yankees Suck
It is a well known fact that the Yankees eat babies, rape young unwed mothers and are the number one cause of the decay of Western civilization.

The most historic and awesome team in American history. The New York Yankees are far more than just a baseball team. They are an institution. Legends such as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Joe Dimaggio, and Reggie Jackson were all Yankees. They have won the world Series 26 times.

Also known as the Bronx Bombers.
The New York Yankees are the ultimate sports franchise.

The most egotistical group of athletes to ever hit the major leagues. They are the first team to CHOKE on a 3 - 0 in the 2004 ALCS. They also suffered the biggest shut out in MLB history, losing 22-0 to Toronto. The Yankees Suck.
Who's your daddy now?
