Civil War Boundaries… What is the South? What is Mason and Dixon’s Line?


The south is the section of the United States that lies below the Mason Dixon line, the Ohio River and the southern boundaries of Kansas and Missouri. The Mason Dixon line was marked by two English astronomers, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. They marked it almost a hundred years before the Civil War but it became part of the boundary line between the slave states of the south and the free states of the north. The Mason Dixon’s Line also serves as the southern boundary line of Pennsylvania.
