the most Southern of Northern States. A lot of people in the Deep South seem to hate us; but many upper Northerners make fun of us as if we are a joke. Well, the latter is quite uninformed. They apparently do not know that we were on their side during the Civil War, as well as about 45% or more of the state population being Unionist, and hating (me) or disagreeing with the idea of the Southern Confederacy today. In addition the "official" Northerners do not realize that Pennsylvanians travelled down the Ohio River to settle much of northern and western Kentucky. Even a few New Yorkers made their new homes in the Commonwealth.
People think that we are the South because they don't realize that there is Southern influence (influence being the keyword) here, which is moderated by the sister states of Indiana and Ohio to the North. Missouri and Illinois are both full of Southern influence and are on a lower line of latitude than us, but they call it the Midwest. Why wouldn't that make us the same.
