Virginia was the first colony to ever be settled.To me it was the most intresting so let me tell you about it!
Let us lay to rest my wife.
Southern colonies:The southern colonies were an ideal place for agriculture. The tidewater left minerals on the tideland, which made the soil fertile. The southern colonies were farther south, which meant the growing season was longer. The climate was warm and moist which was perfect for growing cash crops.
The highest point in Virginia is Mount Rogers at 5,729 feet above sea level.
Highest TemperatureThe highest temperature recorded in Virginia is 110°, Fahrenheit. This record high was recorded on July 15, 1954 at Balcony Falls.Lowest Temperature The lowest temperature in Virginia, -30°, was recorded on January 25, 1985 at Mountain Lake Biological Station.Average Temperature Monthly average temperatures range from a high of 88.4 degrees to a low of 26.2 degrees. Climate
Crops:Mainly tobacco :There is an herb called uppowoc, which sows itself. In the West Indies it has several names, according to the different places where it grows and is used, but the Spaniards generally call it tobacco. Its leaves are dried, made into powder, and then smoked by being sucked through clay pipes into the stomach and head. The fumes purge superfluous phlegm and gross humors from the body by opening all the pores and passages. Thus its use not only preserves the body, but if there are any obstructions it breaks them up. By this means the natives keep in excellent health, without many of the grievous diseases which often afflict us in England.
Government:House of burgesses: With its origin in the first meeting of the Virginia General Assembly at Jamestown in July 1619, the House of Burgesses was the first democratically-elected legislative body in the British American colonies.
