US VIRGIN ISLANDS: a group of Caribbean islands at the eastern end of the Greater Antilles, divided between U.S. and British administration. The islands were settled, mainly in the 17th century, by British and Danish sugar planters. The U.S. islands include about 50 islands; pop. 108,000; capital, Charlotte Amalie (on St. Thomas). They were purchased from Denmark in 1917 because of their strategic position. By ~pnkrckr
