History[edit | edit source]

Delmarva is comprised of portions of Virginia and Maryland, and all of Delaware.  It served as a major center of European immigration into North America.  In colonial times, the Peninsula became home to residents whose origin included both Africa and Northern Europe.[1]  The peninsula is bounded on the East Coast by the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware River and Delaware Bay and the West Coast by the Chesapeake Bay.
