World Events (8)


"Corfield vs Coryell was a significant federal court case that upheld New Jersey's existing regulation, which prohibited any non-residents from gathering clams and oysters. The case was decided by Justice Bushrod Washington of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Justice Washington primarily referenced the first section of the Fourteenth Amendment, regarding ""privileges and immunities"" to arrive at his decision."

1825 · The Crimes Act

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.


The 1844 revision of the New Jersey State Constitution made some significant changes. Suffrage rights were revoked from women and non-whites, meaning that only white men could vote. A separation of powers was established between executive, legislative, and judicial branches. A new bill of rights was provided, and the state now had the right to elect the governor.
