西弗吉尼亚 (West Virginia) 于1863620日成为美国第35

「登山客总是自由的!」这是西弗吉尼亚州的口号。这个句子反映出西弗吉尼亚州的历史与特色,并且说明了西弗吉尼亚如何在1863620日成为美国第35个州。构成西弗吉尼亚的土地本来是弗吉尼亚州的一部份,但是这两个区域却拥有完全不同的环境与民族。许多拓荒者、登山客,都在该州的西部定居下来,而西弗吉尼亚州的东部地区则是一个贵族组成的蓄奴之地。西部的人希望能脱离弗吉尼亚,并于1769年第一次尝试脱离行动,但是最后都没有成功。


"Mountaineers Are Always Free" is the state motto of West Virginia. The phrase reflects the history and identity of the state and indicates how West Virginia became the 35th state in the Union on June 20, 1863. The land that formed West Virginia used to be part of Virginia, but the two areas differed in both surroundings and people. Pioneering individuals, mountaineers, settled in the western portion, while a slave-holding aristocratic society developed in the eastern portion. Westerners wanted to separate from Virginia, and first tried to in 1769, but were unsuccessful.
