    Howdy

    First thing, I'm not trying to mess with the thread or anything like that, so I apologize if it goes that way, but a fun fact is that people from the former Confederate colonies here in Brazil have a reputation of speaking Portuguese with a kind of accent somewhat similar to the Southern American Dialect. A scholar proposed many years ago that such thing as due the Confederate immigration in the region, but I think it is just a coincidence as such accent is present in a region that covers a range very far away from Santa Barbara d'Oeste and Americana (where the Confederates settled). Former President Jimmy Carter visited the region (some relatives of his wife settled there) and said something like "they sound like Southerners".



    This video is from the "Confederate Party", which is held every year since 1988 in the town of Americana. The organizers are descendants of former soldiers from the Confederacy that settled in the region in the 1870s. Look at the old lady at 2:15 and the man that speaks after her and take your conclusions. They both have that "Confederate ancestry".

    IMO they sound a little bit like Southerners when they speak Portuguese, but when they speak English their accent changes and usually they sound like Italians trying to speak English.
