Additional Details:
A tall red cypress stripped of its bark once stood on the present site of Louisiana's Old State Capitol. It marked the boundary between the hunting grounds of the Houma and the Bayou gouda Indians. The early French explorers gave the tree a name, le baton rouge (red stick) - and that is the name the city bears today.
