The South vs The North

The South vs The North

Posted in the Laurens Forum


Laurens, SC

#1 Mar 10, 2008
I was born in the south & grew up in the north. When my hubby & I retired, we decided to move to SC,...somewhere the weather was better. The 'big' problem that we have noticed about living in SC, is that most of the people who were born & raised in SC, simply do not accept anyone from the north. Why do the people from this beautiful state have so much hatred for anyone from the north? My great-grandfathers & great-uncles fought for the 'Confederacy'..all of my ancestors came over from England & settled in VA, NC, & TN. My parents moved north for 'work' in the 1940's. We have not understood just why so many here in SC are so unfriendly to anyone who moved here from the north. If someone could explain this to us, we would appreciate it.
