So now I'm "reading up" on it.

The more and more I read about the Civil War, the more and more I come across W. Virginia. So far, this is what I've found:

Facts and Figures about
WEST VIRGINIA

Area, 24,181 sq mi (62,629 sq km). Pop. (2000) 1,808,344, a 0.8% increase over 1980 pop. Capital and largest city, Charleston. Statehood, June 20, 1863 (35th state). Highest pt., Spruce Knob, 4,863 ft (1,483 m); lowest pt., Potomac River, 240 ft (73 m). Nickname, Mountain State. Motto, Montani Semper Liberi [Mountaineers Are Always Free]. State bird, cardinal. State flower, Rhododendron maximum, or “Big Laurel.” State tree, sugar maple. Abbr., W.Va.; WV

But there's a lot more, in case you're interested, at:
