  1. Virginia was the place many of the leaders of the Revolution, the Confederation, and the new republic came from (Washington, Jefferson, Madison ....). If Virginia did not ratify, the thing could not work because so many of the leaders were Virginians. (Also Massachusetts - Adams and New York - Hamilton)
