Wiki info

Virginia has a total area of 42,774. 2 square miles (110,784. 7 km2), including 3,180. 13 square miles (8,236. 5 km2) of water, making it the 35th-largest state by area. Virginia is bordered by Maryland and Washington, D. C. to the north and east; by the Atlantic Ocean to the east; by North Carolina to the south; by Tennessee to the southwest; by Kentucky to the west; and by West Virginia to the north and west. Virginia's boundary with Maryland and Washington, D. C. extends to the low-water mark of the south shore of the Potomac River. The southern border is defined as the 36° 30′ parallel north, though surveyor error in the 1700s led to deviations of as much as three arcminutes. Tennessee agreed with Virginia to appoint a commission in 1803 to fix their border. In 1871, Virginia attempted to appoint a new surveying commisson, but Tennessee sued, and their court case was decided by the U. S. Supreme Court in 1893 in favor of the line agreed to in 1803. One result of this is the division of the town of Bristol between the two states.
