The south seems to be almost solely devoted to the Civil War. I would be surprised, but delighted, to find a Regency group in the southern states. However, if you go north there is the Regency Society of Tennessee and the Georgia Regency Society.

Sorry for the delay in a reply, lyric. Lots of busy folks on this board (especially during the summer when folks are hither, thither and yon!) so sometimes it's not as active as at other times.
Is there a particular part of "The South" you're interested in? Regency and War of 1812 events do exist but it is helpful to have a general idea of the vicinity you'd be willing to travel to. I imagine that there will be some sort of event commemorating the Battle of New Orleans and "Jane Austen" balls and events at historic houses of the era also occur. In the upper South, there are also the Regency Society of Virginia and the Regency Assembly of North Carolina in addition to the groups Lady Sarah mentioned.

I am seriously considering starting a regency society in SC! There are a few dance groups in NC but as someone else said mostly everyone here in the South is into the Civil War era. I used to live in TN and could kick myself for not knowing about all this sooner (their chapter looks amazing!)
