Historic Virginia
Virginia was named for Queen Elizabeth I of England (the Virgin Queen). King Charles II named it "Old Dominion" because it remained loyal to the crown during the English Civil War. In 1607, the first permanent English settlement in America was developed at Jamestown. All or part of eight other states were formed from western territory once claimed by Virginia. They are Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
