About Virginia

Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States located between the Atlantic Coast and the Appalachian Mountains. The capital of the Commonwealth is Richmond; Virginia Beach is the most populous city, and Fairfax County is the most populous political subdivision. The Commonwealth's estimated population as of 2019 is over 8.54 million.

The area's history begins with several indigenous groups, including the Powhatan. In 1607 the London Company established the Colony of Virginia as the first permanent New World English colony. Slave labor and the land acquired from displaced Native American tribes helped fuel the colony's growth. Virginia was one of the 13 Colonies in the American Revolution. It became the tenth state to ratify the Articles of Confederation on June 25, 1778, and was the 11th state to ratify the United States Constitution on June 26, 1788.

During the American Civil War, Virginia's Secession Convention voted to leave the Union on April 17, 1861, and it became the eighth state to form the Confederate States of America on May 10, 1861. The state's economy was greatly devastated in the war, and its capital, Richmond, was captured by Union forces in 1865. After the war, Virginia's Reconstruction-era legislature imposed racial segregation and Jim Crow laws, preventing African Americans from voting, holding office, or going to school.

In the 20th century, Virginia's economy began to diversify, with the development of agriculture, forestry, fishing, and other natural resources. The state's economy also became more industrialized, with the growth of companies such as Reynolds Metals, Owens-Corning, and Westvaco. In the 21st century, Virginia's economy has continued to diversify, with an increase in tourism, technology, and service industries. The state has also become a leading producer of wine.
