Known for being the birthplace of more US presidents than any other state in the country including the very first president, the state of Virginia has played a huge role in not only our nation’s politics but in its history as well.
As the next stop on our Explore: USA road trip, we’re going to learn all about the people and places from the great state of Virginia that have helped to shape the history of our country.
Virginia State Study
The Old Dominion state is a unique one in that its original colony now makes up portions of six different states.
In fact, a few of its many nicknames represent this fact along with the number of presidents born within its borders.
And just in case you were wondering, we’re going to learn about those nicknames and so much more as we work our way through this Virginia state study.
From the state’s role in the Civil War to the jazz musicians that called Virginia home, we’re going to cover it all!
We’ll even take a look at what it takes to build a government!
