American Evolution is actively engaging with individuals and organizations throughout the Commonwealth. Virginia is an American¬†history icon. Our country began here, and it’s no surprise that the Old Dominion has more than its share of historic and¬†historical sites, exhibits, monuments and legendary personas.




AMERICAN EVOLUTION commemorates the 400th anniversary of several key historical events that occurred in Virginia in 1619 that continue to influence America today. Featured events, programs, and legacy projects inspire local, national, and international engagement in the themes of democracy, diversity and opportunity.
