A New Old Dominion: Virginia in the 20th Century

Using photographs and primary sources throughout the twentieth century, this program is designed to allow students to examine changes in Virginia's society and politics. They will explore context clues from these photographs to develop an awareness of the changes that occurred across the commonwealth during the 1900s. Historical themes such as education, industrialization, urbanization, transportation, and the changing roles of women are explored. Student will learn how World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War accelerated the integration of Virginia back into the national mainstream.
