You would be shocked by the people in the Deep South that don't even know the true story of the Mason Dixon line.

I thought it was the civil war till I got into the region. My 90 year old grandmother was amazed when I told her the true story or meaning. It was not taught to us. We always thought Tennessee or Kentucky. Maybe Missouri. I will leave it at that.

Wikipedia.......

The Mason–Dixon line, also called Mason's and Dixon's line, was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in the resolution of a border dispute involving Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware in Colonial America. It is still a demarcation line among four U.S. states, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia (originally part of Virginia). It represents the cultural border between the Southern United States and the Northern United States.

Not the origin of the Mason Dixon line. It was actually related to territory dispute between states in the late 1700's. Here is the story in Wikipedia
