Perhaps it’s because a great part of the Civil War was held at Virginia, but for some reason Virginians seem to be stuck in the past. They are all history buffs, and more specifically, all obsessed with the Civil War. That’s why they throw annual reenactments of the Civil War, and everyone in Virginia has in their closet periodic outfits.
It’s not just the annual Civil War reenactments, but all around the state you will find war memorials keeping it alive. Most importantly, like every state, Virginians are in somewhat of a denial, and if you confront them about the Civil War fetish, they’ll say it’s just a healthy hobby; In Virginia, like every other state in the U.S, their loyalty for their state comes first.
