Events

  • April 11 – The Virginia General Assembly passed a law requiring the systematic statewide recording of births and deaths. The law required every commissioner of revenue to make an annual registration of births and deaths in his district at the same time personal property subject to taxation was ascertained. The law went into effect on July 1, 1853, and continued until 1896, when an economy-conscious legislature repealed the recording provisions. [1]
