|VIRGINIA Map and Symbols - USA|
Thursday, April 03, 2014
One more US State Map for my collection, this time from Virginia, one of the original 13 united states that formed that great country more than two centuries ago. This State official slogan is 'Virginia is for Lovers', I wonder why... Thank you so much Kristy for this great postcard, after spending a good time looking at it I discovered I knew a lot of Virginia places not knowing they were in Virginia! 7 states collected, only 43 to go. This postcard took 10 days to arrive!
Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a U.S. state located in the South Atlantic region of the United States. Virginia is nicknamed the "Old Dominion" due to its status as a former dominion of the English Crown, and "Mother of Presidents" due to the most U.S. presidents having been born there. The capital of the Commonwealth is Richmond; Virginia Beach is the most populous city, and Fairfax County is the most populous political subdivision.
