West Virginia was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863 as the 35th state. It is the 41st largest by area and the 38th most populous of the 50 United States. West Virginia was the only state to form by seceding from a Confederate state in which 50 northwestern counties of Virginia decided to break away from Virginia during the American Civil War. The capital and largest city is Charleston.
