comment Why were the people from the Southeast in the US so different from the rest of the US?
From the very start of the USA until after the civil war there were two centers of power: New York and Charleston: i.stack.imgur.com/mwqkc.gif They are separated by 750 miles, while Berlin and Paris are only 600 miles apart. In the south "the good get out" and in the northeast the bad are forced out by high costs of living. Geography and economics both contribute to the situation. Also throw in the north having twice as many people during the civil war and the money to do things thereafter resulted in yankee culture dominating the USA. The "old south" culture is still aristocratic.

comment Were Puritans Prudes or Progressive?
@TomAu: You only say that because of the hype surrounding the "Spanish Armada," which arises from it being the only invasion attempt of Britain in hundreds of years. Napoleon "conquered" Germany... and Germans still speak German.
