Ok, the Mason Dixon line is the boarder of the Confederate states, Colorado was not a Confederate State, and the Conferate states didn't go any further West than Texas.

Here's the exact description.

The original Mason-Dixon Line, as surveyed by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in 1763 to 1767, which is precisely defined and restricted to the Pennsylvania/Maryland border (which runs east-west) and that part of the Maryland/Delaware border which runs approximately north-south.

Whether you are using it to define the South from the North in the Civil War or using it in it's true historical border of Maryland, it still doesn't cover Denver..

I'll give you Dallas and Tampa.
