Economy

It was founded by captain John Smith.The Presidents, Zachary Tailor, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James Madison,Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Monroe, and Woodrow Wilson were all born in Virginia.

Virginia has an economy that is highly diversified. Agriculture, once its mainstay, now follows other sectors in employment and income generation. Tobacco, Virginia's traditional staple, is still the leading crop, and grains, corn, soybeans, peanuts, sweet potatoes, cotton, and apples (especially in the Shenandoah Valley) are all important. Wine production is also important; but the major sources of agricultural income are now poultry, dairy goods, and cattle, raised especially in the Valley of Virginia. The coastal fisheries are large, bringing in especially shellfish—largely oysters and crabs.

Social Life

Life in virginia was very difficult mostly for the women. Women had to mary at age of 16, and had an average of 8 kids. The Virginia Colony existed between 1607 and 1776. During that period, the colony went through a series of changes in both denomination and power, but the lifestyle of those living there remain basically the same for those 70 years.
