Old Dominion


Virginia. Every Act of Parliament to the Declaration of Independence designated Virginia “the Colony and Dominion of Virginia.” Captain John Smith, in his History of Virginia (1629), calls this “colony and dominion” Ould Virginia, in contradistinction to New England, and other British settlements.
