The USA has 50 states, and is headquartered in the state of Virginia, on the East Coast. Virginia is the state just below the USA capital, Washington, D.C.


Virginia is also the site of Jamestown, founded in 1607, the first permanent English colony in the New World. So, you can see that Virginia is the birthplace of English-speaking America! The fact that you are reading this post in English shows that you have a connection with the English language that has spread around the world!


Many thanks to team teacher Mr. Woodson who found this link. It gives an A to Z list of cool things to see and visit in Virginia.  Note that "A" is "Appomattox," the small town where the US Civil War ended in 1865. This town is only a 90-minute drive east of our home office, and is also the subject of a blog post that I wrote.


Check out this cool link for yourself here!
