The territory has an almost rounded shape, with two prominences (panhandles),
which go to E (Eastern Panhandle) and N (Northern Panhandle); mainly mountainous
(Spruce Knob, 1482 m), it is largely made up of the Allegheny Plateau, crossed
in the NE-SW direction by long mountain ridges. The Eastern Panhandle is
separated from the main body of the territory by the Allegheny Mountains, E of
which stretches the Great Appalachian Valley, limited to E by the Blue
Ridge. The major rivers are Ohio, the Potomac, Big Sandy, Kanawha and
Monongahela. In the seventies of the twentieth century, in view of serious
employment problems, support plans for industry were launched, which promoted
investments in the mechanical and chemical sectors, while aimed at consolidating
the more mature sectors (metallurgical, glass, food, wood). and building
materials). The role of agriculture (cereals, fruit, potatoes, fodder) and
breeding (cattle, sheep, poultry) are fairly good. The exploitation of forests
and subsoil is important (coal, oil, natural gas, rock salt); the industry is
developed in the food, engineering, chemical, plastics and glass sectors. Major
cities, in addition to the capital, are Huntington, Wheeling and Parkersburg.
The state of West Virginia was formed following the detachment of its western
part from Virginia, whose citizens in 1861 ruled against
the secession order. The territory that later became West Virginia had been
colonized, starting from 1750, by men of the "frontier", who descended from the
Allegheny to the Ohio valley and settled there, creating a prosperous
agricultural economy. Since the beginning of the American Union, the territory
had nourished autonomistic aspirations fueled by divergences of concrete
interests compared to the rest of the state. It also influenced a certain
neglect of the Virginian government towards the western part. The new state was
admitted to the Union in 1863.
