Virginia is the location of one of the largest
collections of historic sites, battlefields and
historical attractions in the South.
It is home to both Jamestown, site of
America's first permanent English
settlement, and Appomattox Court House,
where Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses
S. Grant and began the end of the
Confederacy. The Civil War and American
Revolution were fought across its landscape
and visible reminders of both can still be
seen today.

Virginia is a place not only for lovers, but for
lovers of history and nature.
