State Information About Virginia
Virginia is a state located in the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is located between the Atlantic Coast and the Appalachian Mountains. Virginia is nicknamed as the “Old Dominion” because of its status as the first English colonial possession established in mainland North America. Virginia is also nicknamed “Mother of Presidents”. This is because eight different U.S. presidents were born in Virginia. Which is more than any other state.
Many counties and localities in Virginia hold county fairs as well as festivals. Every September the Virginia State Fair is held at the Meadow Event Park. Also in September is the Neptune Festival in Virginia Beach. This celebrates the waterfront, regional artists, and the city. There’s boat racing and air show at Norfolk’s Harborfest which happens in June. There’s also a unique local tradition, which expands into a week long carnival. It’s the annual Pony Swim and Auction of feral Chincoteague ponies. It occurs at the end of July and takes place on the Eastern Shore island of Chincoteague. The Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival is a six day festival that is held annually in Winchester. It includes parades and bluegrass concerts. Finally there are two important film festivals, the VCU French Film Festival as well as the Virginia Film Festival. These are both held annually in Charlottesville and Richmond.
The most populous city in Virginia is Virginia Beach. Virginia Beach is the thirty-ninth largest city in the United States. Norfolk is the second most populous city in the state. Virginia is nicknamed “Old Dominion” referencing its status as England’s pioneer colonial possession in North America’s mainland. Virginia’s motto, “Sic semper tyrannis,” or “Thus always to tyrants” can be found on the Virginia state flag and the Virginia state seal.
Virginia is rich with history from the birth of the United States. Cape Henry, Virginia is the landing site of the first colonists from England. On April 26th, 1607 these colonists settled in Jamestown, a settlement that eventually became a Crown Colony. Virginia played a vital role in obtaining independence from England as George Mason’s Virginia Declaration of Rights influenced the later United States Declaration of Independence. Eight United States Presidents have hailed from Virginia, an amount surpassing any other state. In the modern day, Virginia is home to the Pentagon, the United States’ hub for defense and one of the sites of the September 11, 2011 terror attack.
