In 1863 What caused west Virginia to form a separate state?
Virginia was split by the Civil War The northwestern counties of Virginia were much more pro-Union than the rest of the state, and in June, 1861, they formed their own separate state government. In 1862, the parts of the state under Union control petitioned for separate statehood. Lincoln approved this after exacting a concession that slavery be phased out. On March 26, 1863, the legislature adopted a new state constitution, and on June 20, 1863, the new state was officially recognized. (These actions were confirmed by the US Supreme Court in 1870.)

I know that this is not a state, but Washington D.C. is. I know that for a fact. Maine was part of Massachusetts, but became a state in 1820. Vermont was part of New York until 1776 (technically became a state in 1791 - the first state outside the original thirteen colonies). West Virginia was part of Virginia until 1863. Nevada became a state by breaking away from the Utah Territory during the Civil War (so not a state from a state).
