Virginia

Virginia has a rich history for the United States as the first permanent British colony. Before that, the Native American tribe in the area was the Powhatan and that means the state’s history dates back well before the explorers first found the country. Virginia is a Commonwealth, which is a title dating back to the time of independence. Commonwealth states were the first to disconnect themselves from British rule and to create a system where the residents decided on laws and elected leaders. With a population of about 8 million, the state is moderate in size and density.
