West Virginia Online Masters

West Virginia, constituent state of the United States of America. Admitted to the union as the 35th state in 1863, it is a relatively small state. It is bordered by Pennsylvania to the north, Maryland, and Virginia to the east, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest. The state capital is Charleston.

West Virginia justifies in every way its nickname, the Mountain State. With an average elevation of about 1,500 feet (460 meters) above sea level, it is the highest of any U.S. state east of the Mississippi River. It is a region tied economically and socially to the mountain spines that span its length and breadth and to the rivers that enclose it on many sides. Originally it constituted the northwestern portion of Virginia, but its inhabitants defied the state’s secession convention in 1861, choosing instead to remain within the union. Two years later the area formed a new state, its citizenry acting much in the tradition suggested by the motto of West Virginia, “Montani Semper Liberi” (“Mountaineers are always free”).
