The Deep South is a descriptive category of the cultural and geographic sub regions in the American South. Historically, it is differentiated from the "Upper South" as being the states which were most dependent on plantation type agriculture during the pre-Civil War period. The Deep South was also commonly referred to as the Lower South or the "Cotton States". Today, the Deep South is usually delineated as being those states and areas where things most often thought of as "Southern" exist in their most concentrated form. The term "Deep South" is defined in a variety of ways: Most definitions include the states of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina. The seven states that seceded from the United States before the firing on Fort Sumter and the start of the American Civil War, and originally formed the Confederate States of America. In order of secession they are: South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas. Due to the migration (especially immigration) patterns of the last half-century, large areas of Florida and Texas are often no longer included under the term. However, there are certain parts of these states, such as East Texas, and the Florida Panhandle that retain cultural characteristics of the Deep South. Source: Wikipedia
