VirginiaVirginia: Founded on June 25, 1978, it is the State that, united to Washington D.C., is part of the United States of America. Being accepted in the Union in the tenth place, its history began from the year 1.523 when the European expeditions began and the Spanish missionaries and conquerors settled down. At that time, these lands were inhabited by Native American groups, scattered throughout the territory, such as Chesepian, Powhatan, Cherokee, among others. From the year 1.619, a new government is established, called the Chamber of Citizens. It is there when slavery begins since blacks were brought from Africa, forcing them to work in the homes and lands of whites, losing all the perks and liberties they had until then. Likewise, the hiring of Europeans to work in the properties continued, until in 1769 it was dissolved. Then, in the year 1776, the Virginia Convention opened the way to a new Constitution and the Commonwealth of Virginia was born. There was established the first colony belonging to England, located in the New World. In addition, he was part of the 13 colonies that fought in the War of Independence, to later become the center of the Confederation, during the development of the Civil War in the United States. Its beginnings were very important, the economy agriculture, slavery, and colonialism, fundamental to its growth. The State was baptized with the name of Virginia, in honor of Queen Elizabeth I of England, as she was the "virgin queen" for not having married. Among other denominations, it is also known under the pseudonym of the "Old Dominion" and, on occasion, it is recognized as the "Mother of Presidents", since there have been eight presidents, of which the first four who held the reins of the country were born in Virginia. With the participation of all, the Constitution was ratified in 1788 and the House of Representatives was strengthened, gaining the necessary relevance to remain as a State of the Commonwealth. In the middle of the 19th century, the situation of slavery was critical, because they were exploited in different areas. In the year 1861, Virginia retires of the Union, losing 48 counties and faced many warlike meetings. Once the battles ended, he returned to the Union, in 1870, with an Ordinance that guaranteed privileges for the inhabitants of color. This was the beginning of the rights for the blacks in the State of Virginia, propitiating the strengthening of the communities of this race and managing to enter the Universities and have the right to education, during the decade of the 50s and 60s. Since then, they have been scaling positions, approving legislation that has led them to be recognized in all areas.

As for law enforcement, the Virginia Congress Police has the most years in operation. The body of National Guards consists of 7,500 soldiers and 1,200 pilots of the Air Force. Thanks to the legislation, the crime rate is very low compared to the general, only 29%, although, more than a hundred individuals have been executed since 1976, due to the approval of the death penalty.

The political and urban landscape has changed in recent years, changing from being a rural area dedicated to the countryside, to becoming a state that is moving forward and adapting to new times. On the political level, there have been changes in the number of supporters of Republicans and Democrats, extending to several counties that were very traditional and conservative. One of the great successes was the right to vote granted to immigrants.

In spite of all the immigration, in the State, there are 8 groups of native Indians and 6 tribes, which are legally recognized. The East Bank of the State is separated from two counties by the Chesapeake Bay, into which flow the James, York, Potomac and Rappahannock rivers. Based on the geological and geographical structure, there are five regions established from east to west, including the lowlands, which belong to the coast, which includes the entire Atlantic coast and the coastal plain. In addition, you can find the Pie de Monte, located east of the Appalachian Mountains and the Southwest Mountains, with Mesozoic and sedimentary igneous rocks.

The highest areas are distinguished by the Cordillera Blue, consisting of the amount Rogers and part of the Appalachians. In the Cordillera and Valle, carbonate rocks can be found, specifically, in the Massanutten Mountain and the vast Appalachian Valley. Extending to the Appalachian Plateau, located west towards the Allegheny Plateau, presenting an outlet in the form of drainage, which flows into the Ohio River basin. Regarding the different altitudes, it can be found that the maximum elevation is about 1,746 meters above sea level and the average height is located at 290 meters, being the minimum at the edge of the Atlantic coast. It is not considered an important seismic area since the telluric movements have a magnitude between 4.5 and 5.9 degrees on the Richter scale. This is due to the strategic location in the center of the North American Plate. That is why the earthquake of greatest intensity occurred in the area, was recorded in Blacksburg in 1897. In general, it has several types of climates, due to the different reliefs it presents. You can find a humid and subtropical climate in the eastern part of the Blue Mountains, a humid continental climate in the mountains towards the west and warmer towards the ocean area.

VirginiaThe period of storms and tornadoes are very common, with storms on average of 35 to 45 a year in the West. As for tornadoes, the estimated annual number is 85, with intensity F2 on the Fujita scale. In winter, large masses composed of cold air come down from the mountains and cause heavy snowfalls. Due to the combination of all these factors, microclimates are created in areas of the mountainous southwest, the Shenandoah Valley, and the coastal plains. In terms of environmental pollution, three counties, including Fairfax County, were rated as having the highest level of pollution. According to a report by the American Lung Association (American Lung Association) made in 2008, he considered that air quality was not suitable for its citizens and the environment. This is due to the growth of populations south of Washington D.C, which has created an increase in the energy consumption of urbanized areas, the increase in automobile pollution and other factors. Electricity is produced through the use of coal, by 50%, the third is generated by nuclear power plants and the rest by thermal power stations of natural gas and oil. In spite of this, the State has a quite extensive extension of forests, since it covers 75% of its total surface. The vegetation in the mountains is based on pines and cactus.

One of the species that was reinserted into the habitat of Shenandoah National Park in the 1990s was the imposing peregrine falcon. The marine fauna is represented by the brook trout, the carp with the black nose and also with the long nose, crabs, oysters, clams, and rockfish or bass striped.

In the year 2006, the sowing of tomatoes was higher than that of soybean, being the most fruitful harvest of the year, together with the production of peanuts and hay. In the fishing sector, oysters represent a very important part of the Chesapeake Bay, although it has suffered a considerable decline, due to diseases, indiscriminate fishing, and water pollution.

In recent years, wine production has gained importance, generating large revenues and promoting the tourist aspect. The wineries and vineyards located in Northern Neck, all along the Cordillera Blue, have opened the doors to this business, promoting the area and becoming a source of employment. In the tourism field, it has many relevant and attractive places to visit, such as the "Historic Triangle" with a journey through the purest American history, from Jamestown, passing through Yorktown and culminating in the living museum of Colonial Williamsburg. In terms of technology, chips are the main export products. Military bases, government dependencies, and agricultural production are fundamental to the economy. The only aspect in which work must be done to improve is in health care and the implementation of policies to protect the environment, since being an area with parks and natural reserves, it is necessary to implement laws that tend to the preservation of life. The culture of the State is based on three main characters, George Washington, first president of the United States, General Robert Edward Lee and Thomas Jefferson, the third president and founder of the Nation.
