I think most consider themselves southerners. But when West Virginia became a state in 1863 we continued to be part of the union not until later did West Virginia secede from the union. So I guess in all reality it a matter of opinion.

Well I'm no history buff but from what I can find. Virginia seceded from the union and when that happened West Virginia seceded from Virginia but never from the union. West Virginia as far as I can tell never actually seceded from the union but we are considered a " border state". But like I said I could be wrong. I googles it from my phone while putting my baby to sleep. Lol

No I think that's right. Your 1st post said WV seceded from the union, I don't think that's correct.

100% Rebels. Only Stonewall Jackson and Susie Q actually voted and they both voted Southern.

I think of myself as a Southerner but not a rebel. It was the eastern Virginia counties who rebeled and fought for the South. The western counties which eventually became the State of West Virginia remained in the Union.

If you not happy being an "AMERICAN" Then I feel sorry for you people in WEST VIRGINIA! Who gives a shit if you're a Northerner or a Southerner? I sure don't.

Let's get this straight: Two thirds of people living in what would become West Virginia were southern sympathizers. These people were mostly in central abn southern "WV". However, the people with the most political power at the time were up north in Wheeling and those areas. Hell, that's Pennsylvania territory. They were willing to make a deal: Make WV a state out of Virginia, and we'll fight for the Union in return. That's how much they despised being overlooked by Virginia, and how desperate they'd become to succeed from them. So even though the vast majority of the people here wanted nothing to do with the Union, they got it never the less. Fact is, that most ALL the former Confederate states are doing well now, while the Union states are falling to pieces. WV has been dead last in anything good for 50 years now, and if I had my way, I'd sue the federal government to make Virginia take us back. Virginia is doing great, while we're at the bottom. WV was the only state to become a state by purely illegal means to start with. The ONLY state.

People from West Virginia are southern wannabes. We are not southerners. Period, I don't care where the Mason Dixon line in.

Truth be told, we are geographical half breeds and the only counties in this state that can claim any real southern roots are Monroe, Greenbrier and Mercer Counties.

The rest of the state is just a mix of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

I personally do not identify myself as a southerner even though my mother's family were Virginia plantation owners who lost everything in the war. My dad's family fought for the union and they are the ones I am proud of. They protected this country from treasonous racists.

The people in this state are mostly a bunch of crackers who think talking like a stupid hick makes them southerners.

Sorry, it doesn't.
