Admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, West Virginia is one of only two new states created during the war and the only one created by separation from a Confederate state. Located entirely within the Appalachian Highlands, West Virginia is now known as the Mountain State. Its official motto reflects the realities of topography as well as its individualistic spirit: montani semper liberi, “mountaineers are always free.”

Call or write your representatives and tell them to support Senate bill 316, H.R. 630, H.R. 961 and/or H. Res. 30. For more information, visit (http://www.nalc.org) and do what I do: double up on the postage. Seriously - if you think one more "forever stamp" is too much to support the Post Office - consider how expensive it's going to be when your only option is FedEx.
