Southern and Eastern Canada

The Southeastern United States, also called the American Southeast or just the Southeast, is a region of the United States that spans a large chunk of the country's eastern half.

The Southeastern United States is a section of the United States. It is also commonly referred to as the American Southeast or just the Southeast. Location-wise, it spans a large swath of land between the eastern and southern sides of the US south. Several states along the eastern Gulf Coast and the southeastern United States are central to this region. Its vast scope allows it to extend north to West Virginia and Maryland (which it shares with the Ohio River and the Mason-Dixon Line) and west to Arkansas and Louisiana. There is no canonical U. S region as defined by the government, though different agencies and departments may use slightly

Geography [ edit ]

The U S As defined by the Geological Survey, the Southeast consists of the following states and territories: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee; plus Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands.

A southeastern United States definition has not been established by the Census Bureau. Instead, they create three distinct regions within the larger area that includes Texas, Oklahoma, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia but is not typically associated with the Southeast.

The states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia make up the Southeastern United States, as defined by the non-profit American Association of Geographers. Arkansas and Louisiana are added to the list of states used by the OSBO (Organization Supporting Business Owners). The U.S., the states of Delaware and Missouri, S definitions sometimes include the nation's capital of Washington, D.C.

History [ edit ]

There is evidence of human habitation in the Southeast dating back to at least 11,000 BC, or 13,000 years ago. Clovis culture artifacts date to the beginning of recorded history. Woodland Native Americans lived in the area for several hundred years before Europeans arrived.

Conquistadors from the Spanish Empire were the first Europeans to arrive in the area. Hernando de Soto traveled the southeast and crossed the Mississippi River in 1541. In 1606, the English established Jamestown, Virginia as the first permanent European settlement in North America. The southeastern states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia were part of the original Thirteen Colonies that fought for independence from Great Britain and eventually joined the fledgling United States.

Southerly states like Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Louisiana, and Arkansas formed the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. Texas, though a Confederate state, is not typically placed in the southeast. Some border states remained in the Union despite being politically uninvolved: Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware. In 1863, West Virginia was established as a separate state from its parent Virginia. After the end of the Civil War in the 1870s, Jim Crow laws were enacted in many Southeastern states. In the United States, the era of segregation lasted roughly from the late 19th century to the mid-1960s.

Significant demographic and economic shifts occurred in the region's Southeast in the middle and latter decades of the 20th century. New Deal policies, such as the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Fair Labor Standards Act, which established a national minimum wage, helped spur economic growth in the Southeast during the 1930s. Military bases and the production of military equipment attracted workers from farming and other low-wage industries to the Southeast during World War II, further fostering economic growth in the region. The Southeast's economy would undergo further change in the later decades of the twentieth century as a result of farming mechanization picking up steam in the 1940s, the promotion of various industries, and federal spending on defense and space programs. [2]

Because of its favorable business and weather conditions, the Southeast's population grew rapidly toward the end of the twentieth century, drawing in people looking for work and people looking to retire. S regions Particularly, Florida rose from the nation's 27th most populous state to the S region with 1 in 1940 From having the least people in the United States (at 1. S In the year 2000, the state of California had nearly 13 million residents. States in the southeast, like North Carolina and Georgia, also experienced substantial population growth in the latter part of the twentieth century. [3]

Demographics [ edit ]

State with the highest population [ edit ]

As of the upcoming 2020 United States census, the states of Florida (21,538,187), Georgia (10,711,908), and North Carolina (10,439,388) will hold the three highest populations in the Southeast. [4]

The World's Biggest Cities [ edit ]

Jacksonville is the region's most populous city and the tenth-largest metro area.
Charlotte is the region's second-largest city and the economic hub of the sixth-largest metropolitan area.
As the hub of the South's third-largest metropolitan area, Atlanta, the eighth largest city in the region, plays an important role.
Even though it's only the region's thirteenth largest city, Tampa is a major hub for the fourth-largest metropolitan area.
Miami is the epicenter of the region's second-largest metro area, and the eleventh-largest city overall.
Nashville is the eighth-largest metro area in the South and makes up the region's fourth-largest city.

According to the United States Census Bureau in 2015, these are the largest cities in the Southeast:[11]

Statistical regions that have been combined [ edit ]

The Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech, in an effort to bring Jean Gottmann's work up to date, defines two of the ten megalopolitan areas in the United States as being located in the Southeast:

Two more connect rural outlying areas of the Southeast to major population centers elsewhere:

  • The "Gulf Coast" stretches from Texas to Florida's westernmost point.
  • Much of Maryland, Central Virginia, and Eastern Virginia are included in the "Northeast"

According to 2016 estimates from the United States Census Bureau, these are the Southeastern region's combined statistical areas with populations of more than one million. The table includes metro areas that are not included in any CSAs, such as Tampa and Richmond. [15]

Culture [ edit ]

The Southeast United States is home to a distinct culture that S has its roots in the arrival of European colonists and African slaves to the area between the 17th and 19th centuries. During this time, large numbers of people from the United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, and Acadia settled in the area. It wasn't until the late 20th century that the "New South" became the most economically dynamic region in America. The Southeastern states are among the most recent to embrace multiculturalism. There is still a large African American population in the Southeast, making up about 30% of the region's total inhabitants. When looking at the Southeastern United States, it is easy to see that the New South is based on the metropolitan areas along the I-85 corridor. The Raleigh–Durham metropolitan area, Greensboro, Charlotte, Spartanburg, Greenville, Atlanta, and Montgomery are all cities that can be found along this route heading south.

Climate [ edit ]

Humid subtropical climate (Cfa/Cwa) prevails over most of the southeastern United States. All months of the year, including winter, have average highs that are warmer than 64 degrees Fahrenheit, and the climate becomes more tropical as one travels southward through Florida. 4 °F (18 0 degrees Celsius) (the official definition of the coldest monthly mean temperature in tropical climates).

The region as a whole experiences hot and humid summers. During the summer, the Bermuda High forces hot and humid air from the tropical Atlantic Ocean and eastern Gulf of Mexico westward toward the southeast United States, producing the typical hot and humid weather of a tropical climate. Typical highs during the day range from the high 80s to low 90s Fahrenheit. There is a sharp summer monsoon-like pattern over peninsular Florida, with dry winters and wet summers, typical of the Gulf Coast and South Atlantic coast from Norfolk, Virginia southward. In contrast to the quick, heavy downpours that are common in the region during the summer, the southeastern United States sees an abundance of sunshine. Maximum monthly rainfall amounts in the mid-South occur during the winter and spring due to abundant Gulf moisture and clashes between warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico and cold, dry air from Canada. This is especially true for Tennessee and the northern halves of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. In this region (including the cities of Tupelo, Mississippi, Huntsville, Alabama, and Memphis, Tennessee), the wettest months are typically December, March, or April, while the driest months are August through October.

The northern regions, including East Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, and western North Carolina, have mild winters with January highs averaging around 45 °F (7 °C). Average January highs in the interior of eastern North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama are in the 53 °F (12 °C) range, making for considerably warmer weather than the northern parts of those states. Daytime highs rise above 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) in the winter as one travels toward the coast from the Gulf of Mexico, the coastal plain, and the coastal areas of Georgia and the Carolinas, and eventually reach above 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius) in central Florida. Florida has very dry, sunny winters, with rainfall increasing gradually with latitude, especially west of the Appalachians.

Economy [ edit ]

The late 20th century marked a turning point in the Southeast's economy. Its service economy, industrial base, high tech industries, and financial sector have all been growing. Examples of this include the surge in tourism in Florida and along the Gulf Coast; the numerous new automobile production plants such as Mercedes-Benz in Tuscaloosa; Hyundai in Montgomery; Toyota Motors in Blue Springs, Mississippi; Kia in West Point, Georgia; BMW production plant in Greer, South Carolina; Volkswagen in Chattanooga; GM manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee; with the Nissan North American headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee; Mercedes-Benz USA; and Porsche North American headquarters in the Atlanta area; the two largest research parks in the country: Research Triangle Park in the Triangle area of North Carolina (the world's largest) and the Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, Alabama (the world's fourth largest); and the corporate headquarters of Verso Paper and Memphis, Tennessee is home to both FedEx and the Coca-Cola Company's world headquarters. Atlanta, Georgia is home to Delta Airlines, The Home Depot, and UPS. Both Dillard's and Heifer International call Little Rock, Arkansas home for their administrative offices. Similar to Walmart, which has its headquarters in Arkansas

Twenty-two of the Southeast's Fortune 500 headquarters are located in Virginia in 2020; another eighteen are in neighboring states like Georgia and Florida; thirteen are in neighboring North Carolina; and ten are in neighboring Tennessee. Because of this growth in industry, some southern states now have the nation's lowest unemployment rates. [19] The German steel multinational corporation ThyssenKrupp owns a massive, cutting-edge manufacturing facility in Mobile, Alabama.

However, many Southeast states and regions still have a high poverty rate when compared to the rest of the United States, despite the success of some Southeast states and regions. S nationally In 2017, seven states in the Southeast ranked among the top ten in the country for highest poverty rate. [20]

Topics for future study and development [ edit ]

The Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area in North Carolina is home to Research Triangle Park, which has become a major center for technological, governmental, and biotechnological R&D. Located near Huntsville, Alabama, the Cummings Research Park is the country's second-largest research complex. Huntsville is home to numerous important government, military, and aerospace institutions, including the Redstone Arsenal, the United States Army Missile Command, the United States Space & Rocket Center, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, and many more. Arnold Air Force Base is located in Tullahoma, Tennessee. Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) is the most cutting-edge and expansive flight simulation test facility complex in the world, and it is located at this base.

Tallahassee, Florida is home to the world's largest magnetism research facility: the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. Currently, [21] the University of South Carolina is the only Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Fuel Cells in the United States, and the university is building a research campus in the heart of Columbia. [22]

Education [ edit ]

Athens, Georgia's University of Georgia
College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Alabama, located in Tuscaloosa
The Chapel Hill campus of the University of North Carolina

Public and private institutions of higher education in the area are among the best in the world. The most prestigious public institutions are:

Additionally, there are a few prestigious non-government organizations Among the most notable are:

There are more HBCUs concentrated in this area than anywhere else in the country. Three of the region's largest are:

  • A & T State University of North Carolina
  • A&M University of Florida
  • University of Howard

Even though American football is popular all over the country, it is especially popular in the South. The Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, and the Washington Commanders are just a few of the NFL teams that call the Southeast home.

  1. ^ St St. Louis is commonly included in the Midwest's definition. The truth is that St. St. Louis is the only city on this list that is located in the Midwest rather than the Southeast. St St. Louis is closer to Springfield, the capital of neighboring Illinois, than it is to Jefferson City, the seat of government in neighboring Missouri. St St. Louis is also geographically closer to the state of Ohio than it is to Illinois.
