La línea Mason-Dixon o Mason and Dixon es la que divide simbólicamente el norte y el sur de Estados Unidos y que, hasta el final de la Guerra Civil, marcaba la separación entre aquellos estados en donde existía la esclavitud y aquellos en los que no. Esta línea de demarcación, que se extiende a lo largo de 377 kilómetros, fue establecida por Charles Mason y Jeremiah Dixon en el siglo XVIII con el fin de solucionar un conflicto que ya duraba 80 años sobre la frontera entre Maryland y Pensilvania. En 1779 la línea se extendió para demarcar la frontera entre Pensilvania y Virginia (hoy Virginia del Oeste); en la actualidad aún sirve como referencia del sur en general y en las canciones de country & western los cantantes hablan con nostalgia de "cruzar la línea" para volver a sus tierras sureñas.
