    I'm kicking myself. But here goes.......

    Everything I knew about comes from distant memory from something I saw on history channel years ago. A quick Google had this interesting link

    Statehood for West Virginia: An Illegal Act?
    www.wvculture.org/history/journal_wvh/wvh30-1.html
    The admission of West Virginia in the midst of a war was an unusual event in the ... The restored Union-oriented government of Virginia lived briefly and with little ... Actual statehood did not occur until June 20, 1863 but the creation of West ...


    So from what I read the state of WVA would have never happened if not for VAs preoccupation with union aggression and invasion. WVA succeeding from va was not only illegal from the commonwealths state law but was also illegal federally. They legality of the new state hood was questioned by most all even president Lincoln. Who himself was guilty of approval and directing of war crimes along with his secretary of war and Secretary of State.

    Well, what do you know? Looks like things haven't changed much from that time and now, either state-wise or federally!!! [​IMG]

    History always repeats itself

    The scriptures prove true
    Jeremiah 10:23- it does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his steps

    Just one more reason I'm proud to be a West Virginian...... we're just a tad more independent than the average American.

    Proverbs 16:18-pride is before a crash.....

    That prideful independence comes at a cost. 152 yrs later VA is the 9th wealthiest commonwealth in the union. WVA is the 49th.

    I'll take it. I don't particularly care how rich one state is compared to another as my life is wonderful and joyous, regardless of material gain or worth.

    For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Mark 8:36
