Virginia, located on the Atlantic coast between the state of Delaware and North Carolina, has one of the longest histories of all states. It had strong ties to both the North and the South, so it often played a major role in the history of the United States.

Virginia, named after Queen Elizabeth I of England (1533-1603), was the first British colony in America. It was founded in 1607 on the site of present-day Jamestown (southeast of Richmond). The first settlers were plagued by epidemics, famines and frequent raids by Indians who defended their land from intruders. However, tobacco plantations soon brought prosperity and profits allowed residents to establish a rich cultural and educational tradition with prestigious institutions such as William and Mary College in Williamsburg on the banks of the James River.

The Virginia colony was dissatisfied with British rule long before the War of Independence, in which several Virginia citizens played a key role, most notably George Washington (1732-1799) and Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826). Virginia was the site of the first Continental Congress in 1774 and witnessed the decisive British defeat at Yorktown (east of Williamsburg) in 1781.

The importation of slaves from Africa was banned in 1778, but slavery was retained as such. In 1861, Virginia led the Confederacy, whose capital was Richmond. The Civil War ended in. 1865 Defeat of Confederate units at Appo-mattox (west of Richmond). Many years passed before the state’s economy was restored. By World War I, the development of coal mining, non-ferrous metal ores and other industries had removed dependence on tobacco production.

World War II brought strong economic growth to Virginia through the construction of military bases and the development of shipbuilding on the Atlantic coast. Many people also employ federal institutions in Washington. Virginia’s great wealth is its history. In particular, Williamsburg, a city strictly restored to its 17th-century appearance, and the Mount Vernon Memorial (south of Washington) attract large numbers of tourists.
