About Virginia

In 1607, Virginia was established as the first British colony in the Americas in the territory now known as the Commonwealth of Virginia, a state in the country’s Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Virginia seceded during the Civil War, and then the state of West Virginia emerged. At the nation’s dawn, the most significant production in Virginia was done through plantations – agriculture, tobacco, and cotton. Mining and shipbuilding were also rising industries during this period.

Today, Virginia’s economy moves around agriculture, government, and high-tech industries. It’s important to note that the quality of life in Virginia is the highest in the US, the state is one of the most small-businesses-friendly in the United States. In addition, many federal agencies have their headquarters in this state, such as the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Department of Defense. Virginia is also known as “The Mother of Presidents” because eight Presidents were Virginian-born.
