Additional Details:
Tallahassee was selected principally on account of its advantageous location from a geographical standpoint. Florida, often called the "Peninsular State", has an area of 58,680 square miles, and was admitted to the Union in 1845. The State flower is the japonica. Florida was so named in 1512, by Ponce de Leon, because it was discovered on Easter Sunday, which, in Spanish, is designated "Pascua Florida."
