An extremely misunderstood state. It seceded from the Confederacy circa 1863 because the state opposed slavery. It is full of breathtaking scenery and a simplicity that is genuinely hard to find anywhere else. Life slows down a little in West Virginia... there isn't all the hustle and commotion of a larger city or state. It's peaceful, and wonderfully inspiring.
Those who live there know its flaws, but appreciate all its wonderful qualities. They call it home, and it holds a special place in their hearts.

Many people criticize the state for the stereotypical "Hillbillies" which allegedly inhabit it; however, if one pays attention to the critics, they themselves usually sound quite uneducated. Those who live in glass houses...
"Almost heaven, West Virginia

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River

Life is old there, older than the trees

Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home

To the place I belong

West Virginia, Mountain Mama

Take me home, country roads"
