WORLD ALMANAC FACTS Virginia once stretched from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean sind even included the Bermuda Islands, says The World Almanac. These sea-to-sea boundaries were fixed by three royal charters granted by the King of England in 1606, 1609, and 1611-12. Virginia thus claimed an area of more than one million square miles. This vast territory was reduced by the charters of Maryland in 1632 and Pennsylvania in 1681.
