Before the industrial revolution in the 19th century, Virginia was the most influential state in the United States. With the build-up of industry in the big cities of the north, many migrated from agriculture-dominated Virginia and the state lost its influence. The last decisive battle of the North American War of Independence took place in Yorktown in 1781.
