Yankee or Dixie?

I found this over on Finding Direction:

Yankee or Dixie?

It told me I was 89% Dixie and then asked if there were Confederates in my ancestry -- imagine that y'all. Try it out and comment with your scores.

That was fun. I came out with 72 %
The one thing that I thought was odd though was the "Aunt" (which I pronounce like "want" -- the only people I've ever known to pronounce it that way were my parents and my relatives from Virginia. In grad school a Black friend of mine (from Toadsuck, Arkansas) said I was the first white person she'd ever heard say it that way. But the quiz said "Massachusetts" -- I particularly thought that was odd because Louisa May Alcott (from Massachusetts) definitely pronounced it "ant" because she made a pun "aunt hill" in one of her books.
