Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
On a cold April day in 1607, 143 Englishmen left their three small ships and stepped onto dry land for the first time in four months. There, in Jamestown Settlement, they established the first permanent English settlement in North America. This authoritative one-volume narrative lays out the following 400 years of Virginia history in 17 comprehensive yet accessible chapters.
Weekly Standard
A splendid narrative.
Weekly Standard
A splendid narrative.
editor of the Virginia Magazine of History and Bio Nelson D. Lankford
"For decades, we have lacked a modern account of Virginia’s rich, tumultuous, and consequential history, which has shaped so much of our nation’s past. Now we have it. In the hands of these four authors, the Old Dominion’s story unfolds with compelling force.
Jon Kukla
"Passing the narrative baton as gracefully as an Olympic relay team, Heinemann, Kolp, Parent, and Shade carry students and general readers on a brisk run through four eventful centuries of Virginia history. From Captain John Smith to Governor Tim Kaine, Old Dominion, New Commonwealth presents the political history of Virginia in the context of economic and social change from colonization to globalization.

    Rules/ Explanations

    Firstly, congrats on being accepted! Most of the rules are the same ones you saw when you applied. No sex, good grammar, etc. So let me explain about the Time Intersections. Think about it this way: each time period is a road, where they intersect is where you can contact the rpers in other time periods. When you go to eerr, simply pick an empty result for your time period. That's where you sleep, and talk to other people in your time period (if there are any.) Try to keep the location of this rp a secret, because there was a reason you had to apply. Please advertise for this, because I'm locked out of the first res of warriors. If you have any questions, please ask in the in the result below. Have fun! ~ TimeM
