"During the six-year Revolutionary war, more of the fights took place in New Jersey than any other colony. Over 296 engagements between opposing forces were recorded. One of the largest conflicts of the entire war took place between Morristown and Middlebrook, referred to as the ""Ten Crucial Days"" and remembered by the famous phrase ""the times that try men's souls"". The revolution won some of their most desperately needed victories during this time."

Age 21

Thomas Jefferson's American Declaration of Independence endorsed by Congress. Colonies declare independence.

Age 25

"Sometimes referred to as the ""forgotten victory"", the Battle of Springfield was one of the last major battles fought in the north during the Revolutionary War. The British defeat effectively ended their ambitions to reclaim New Jersey. Washington praised the New Jersey Militia for their universal effort and great spirit"

Name Meaning

1 Dutch: occupational name from akkerman ‘plowman’; a frequent name in New Netherland in the 17th century. Later, it probably absorbed some cases of the cognate German and Swedish names, Ackermann and Åkerman respectively.2 English: from a medieval term denoting feudal status, Middle English akerman (Old English æcerman, from æcer ‘field, acre’ + man ‘man’). Typically, an ackerman was a bond tenant of a manor holding half a virgate of arable land, for which he paid by serving as a plowman. The term was also used generically to denote a plowman or husbandman.3 Variant of German and Jewish Ackermann .
