I could be wrong, of course, but I think the South included Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee. In short, of course, those states that were to the Southeast.
But in the North: Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Kansas, Oregon, California.

Answer from: Dima Fourier:

Well, to begin with, at the time of the actual outbreak of hostilities in 1861, U.S. territory had a different administrative division than it does today. For example, Montana and Wyoming did not yet exist, the Dakotas were not divided into North and South, and Alaska and Hawaii were colonies of other powers.
By and large, the layout was like this:
South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Arizona, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee. **
The Yankees, on the other hand, had a clear preponderance of territory, for they were spoken for: **Iowa, Vermont, Wisconsin, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, California, Kansas, Kentucky, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Michigan, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island**
