"Old Dominion" became the first English colonial possession in mainland North America in 1607. 180 years later, what remained of the territory became the 10th state admitted to the Union on June 25, 1788.

The Commonwealth of Virginia is the only state to have produced as many as eight United States Presidents, earning the nickname, "Mother of Presidents" and/or "Mother of Statesmen." Virginia is also the only state to limit its governors to one consecutive term in office, which might be one reason it has been repeatedly ranked as the most effective government by the Pew Center on the States.
