West Virginia Public Schools by County

West Virginia was born from a Virginia split. On the eve of the Secession war, an opposition broke out between eastern Virginia, whose prosperous economy rested on large plantations and slavery, and western Virginia, the poorest, developing subsistence agriculture and favorable to the suppression of slavery.

In 1861, Virginia joined the Southern Confederation. The abolitionist counties, loyal to the Union, refused to make secession. Following the constitutional convention of November 26, 1861, they formed West Virginia. This region joined the Union on June 20, 1863, becoming the thirty-fifth American State. East Virginia experienced great economic prosperity thanks to the extraction and the coal industry, and the creation of the railroad network (1880-1910). The coal it occupies close to two-thirds of the state's subsoil poses serious environmental problems (open-pit mining, risk of flooding).
