British Virginia is a new series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colony. These texts will eventually range from the 16th and 17th-century literature of English exploration to the 19th-century writing of loyalists and other Virginians who continued to identify with Great Britain. British Virginia editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable.
