English term or phrase: the south shall rise again
personal
toby
meridies iterum orietur.
Explanation:
There is no simple Latin for "the South", meaning the southeastern states of the U.S.A. that once seceded from the Union.

"Meridies" simply means "south" or "noon" (since "south" is the direction of the sun at noontime). An alternative might be the more complex "Civitates Americae Confoederatae iterum orientur," using a Latin version of the phrase Confederate States of America. One might also try "Civitates meridienses iterum orientur," "The southern states will rise again."
