A recent yard sale outing produced this finding, an old history of Virginia text book called Virginia’s History and Geography from 1950. The contents start way back with the early lost colony of Sir Waler Raleigh and Jamestown and ends discussing the post WW2 economy of Virginia. As usual with these old text books, the illustrations are more interesting…
I love this map of Virginia, with a young George Washington taken measurement of the land as a surveyor.
Lewis, Clark, and Sacajawea ….
The book also includes a strange section on the geography of Virginia. Attempting to locate Virginia relative to the rest of the world the result are some excellent diagrams.
