Kansas is north of the Mason-Dixon line thus qualifying them as Yankee scum.
Kell from Modern Family is a proud K-State alum
That's the Missouri Compromise line, I believe.
Benton and Washington counties are not southern, they have a midwest feel to them.
Kansaw weren't a state or territory fightin' with us Rebs in 1861-1865 now, was it? In fact, even the pussies in Missourrah that CLAIM to be southern but never quite managed to pull the trigger and make it official hated the kansaw people and the way they snuck across the border on raids against the slaveholders.Anyone claiming being a Kansaw native equals a claim on being from the south is wrong. They are Yankees, and the fact they are close to Benton County gives no more traction than anyplace in the world close to ANY surveyed line or border. Someone has to be, right, and you are on one side of it or the other, it doesn't matter how close. You are either from a Southern State, or you are not. There is no in-between. kansaw ain't, and they really do suck for even claiming it.Mason-Dixon was used for the Missouri Compromise, much more pertinent to the Civil War. Kansaw is on the wrong side of it. The Mason Dixon line didn't extend past now West Virginia.
Anything north of I-40 is yankee territory. Sorry Dogtown...
Confederate smack? Are we Ole Miss now?
I learned in a horticulture class that the whole reason the University of Arkansas is in Fayetteville (and not closer to Little Rock/East Arkansas) is because the people in NWA didn't fight for the Confederacy. The US government was reluctant to put a land-grant institution smack dab in the middle of the part of the state with strong Confederate roots.
I heard it was because Fayetteville came up with the most money.
