James River

James River, a river of Virginia, U.S.A., 450 miles in length, is formed by the junction of two streams near the eastern border of West Virginia, and flows in an easterly direction, bending at first to the south, then making a northerly curve, and finally turning south till it reaches the Atlantic by a large estuary about twenty miles below Richmond. It is navigable by large steamers for about sixty miles.
