Excerpt from Confederate Military History, Vol. 3 of 12: A Library of Confederate States History
The geographical position and general relations of Virginia gave her a commanding position. Classed as one of the Middle Atlantic States, situated midway be tween Maine on the nor... theast and Florida on the south east, she was, in reality, the representative mid-coast State of the Union; having, in consequence of her posi tion and variety of land relief, many Of the characteris tics Of the States lying both to the north and south of her. Because of her great extension, of over 500 miles, from the Atlantic across the Atlantic highlands to the Ohio, she had many of the features and adaptations of the States lying to the west as well as of those on the northwest and southwest. She was also the eastern one of the central belt of States, as the latitude of the eu trance to Chesapeake bay very nearly corresponds to that of the Golden Gate of California.
