    Age 1

    The Crimes Act was made to provide a clearer punishment of certain crimes against the United States. Part of it includes: Changing the maximum sentence of imprisonment to be increased from seven to ten years and changing the maximum fine from $5,000 to $10,000.


    Age 9

    The Camden & Amboy railroad was completed in 1833. It made transportation between New York City and Philadelphia possible within a 7-hour time-frame. This advancement led to dozens of other companies opening railroad lines during the 1800's.


    Age 37

    No Civil War battles took place within the state boundaries of New Jersey, but its citizens participated extensively in the war. Volunteers that were turned away ended up serving in the militias of nearby states like Pennsylvania and New York. Whenever President Lincoln requested more troops, New Jersey responded quickly. In total, the state contributed over 88,000 soldiers (6,000 of which died).
