The First Anglo-Virginian War was a conflict fought between Great Britain and their former colony of Virginia, in an unsuccessful attempt of Virginian separatists to gain independence. The war erupted over Britain's abolishment of slavery in its colonies in 1833, and lasted from 1833-1834 in a defeat for the Virginian separatists.
