West Virginia Maps
West Virginia became a state following the Wheeling Conventions of 1861, in which delegates from 50 northwestern counties of Virginia decided to break away from Virginia during the American Civil War. The new state was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863, and was a key Civil War border state. West Virginia was the only state to form by separating from a Confederate state and was one of two states formed during the American Civil War (the other being Nevada, which separated from Utah Territory).
