Perhaps the most historical state in the nation, Virginia has had a special role in the founding of our country and the ideas that make it great. The birthplace of 8 U.S. Presidents thus far, including 4 of the first 5, Virginia is also home to the first British Colony at Jamestown. Mount Vernon, home of George Washington, and Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson, are not only landmarks of history, but of art and architecture. In addition to the wealth of Revolutionary War historical sites throughout the states, there are many critical Civil War sites. Among them are the battlefields of Chancellorsville and Manassas, and the Appomattox Court House, where General Lee surrendered to General Grant.
The state has something to offer for every lifestyle; southwestern Virginia is country farmland with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the peaceful Shenandoah Valley is home to a large Mennonite community, and Northern Virginia surrounding Washington D.C. is a fast-paced political, commercial and technological epicenter. The two most affluent counties in the United States are located in this area.
Also to be found in Virginia is the National Office of American Majority, located 50 miles west of D.C. in the quiet town of Purcellville, VA. Just close enough to Washington, D.C, Purcellville provides the peaceful environment of a slow-paced, rural community, with convenient access to strategic meetings, conventions, and contacts within the District. The national office is committed to seeing our country return to the beliefs that our Founding Father’s built it on, a commitment to a limited government, free-market and individual liberty. We believe that training community leaders to be effective activists and candidates will leave a lasting change in Virginia, and the nation, a nation that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be proud of.
