    1. Its a good reference book, or a refresher on Virginia History, which if your a Virginia you got back in 4th grade. Written by four current and emeritus professors of history, Old Dominion, New Commonwealth: A History of Virginia 1607-2007 is an in-depth chronicle of the state of Virginia's history since the founding of the Jamestown colony. A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate this fascinating chronicle of the changes that beset Virginia over the centuries, accessible to scholars [...]


    2. Thorough history of Virginia from its founding as colony to the present. Fans of American or Civil War history will find much that is familiar. My favorite part was the history of the 100 years after the Civil War, as this period generally isn't covered in other works, and it saw the emergence of a relatively stable, conservative government in the state. However, I thought the book lacked an overall organizing theme, and was heavy on a lot of the faddish aspects of 20th century history.


    3. This is a decent overview of Virginia history. It's hard to fit 400 years of history into about 350 pages, though.
