Deep South

Cultural region of the United States

The Deep South is a cultural and geographic subregion in the Southern United States. Historically, it was differentiated as those states most dependent on plantations and slave societies during the pre-Civil War period. It became poor after 1865 and was a major site of racial tension, white supremacy, lynching, and the Civil Rights Movement. The Deep South before 1945 was often referred to as the Cotton States, given that the production of cotton was the primary cash crop.
