67% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!

I guess Missouri IS in the south, eh?

Yes, I love stars, your assumption about Yankee being north and Dixie being south is correct. It goes back to the American Civil War fought in the early 1860's. Northerners are called "Yankees" by people from the south. The southern United States got the term Dixie from several possible sources. The song "Dixie" popularized the term. Here's a link if you're interested in the origins of the term "Dixie" being used for the south.

It's an American thing. Hope this helps.
