One of several 13 original colonies, Virginia was the first element of the country permanently settled by the English, who established Jamestown on the banks associated with the James River in 1607. Your home state of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers, Virginia played an important role when you look at the American Revolution (1775-83). Throughout the Civil War (1861-65), the town of Richmond, Virginia, became the main city associated with the Confederacy, and much more than half of the conflict’s battles were fought within the state. Today, many government institutions are headquartered in Virginia, particularly in Arlington, located across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Along with eight presidents, famous Virginians include singer Ella Fitzgerald, tennis star Arthur Ashe, actress Shirley MacLaine and authors Willa Cather and Tom Wolfe.
