1861年時,位於該州西北區的維吉尼亞居民認為維吉尼亞應脫離美國。 而選擇繼續留在聯邦內的地區則成立一個新的州。 在西維吉尼亞逐步解放該地區的奴隸後,國會終於在1863年同意西維吉尼亞加入聯邦。 西維吉尼亞州的座右銘是「登山者是自由的」(Mountaineers are always free ),而且西維吉尼亞也是名符其實的「高山之州」(Mountain State),它的平均海拔高度為1,500英尺,是密西西比河以東最高的一州。 西維吉尼亞有很長的一段時間是北美的主要煤礦生產大州,但當地的許多居民仍離鄉追求更好的就職機會。 現在的情況已經漸漸不同,而且它的經濟狀況也較之前來的穩定了。 西維吉尼亞的首府是查理斯敦(Charleston),而它的州花是大杜鵑花。


In 1861, Virginians in the northwestern part of the state defied Virginia's secession from the United States. The region chose to remain in the Union and form a new state. West Virginia was admitted into the Union in 1863, after conditions requiring the gradual emancipation of slaves had been met. The state motto is "Mountaineers are always free," and West Virginia lives up to its nickname of the "Mountain State." With an average altitude of 1,500 feet above sea level, it's the highest of any state east of the Mississippi River. For a long time, West Virginia was a leading producer of coal in North America, but many people left to pursue better employment opportunities. That trend has turned around, and now the state's economy is in a more stable condition. The capital is Charleston, and the state flower is the big rhododendron.
