Virginia was named after Queen Elizabeth, the famous “Virgin Queen” of England, and its capital is Richmond. Virginia was the birthplace of many famous historical figures, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Woodrow Wilson, and Robert E. Lee—to name just a few—hence the nickname “Mother of Presidents.” The state flower and the state tree are both the same, Dogwood. Currently, nearly eight million people call Virginia home.
