1836

Age 1

"In April 1836, Samuel Colt formed a corporation of venture capitalists to bring his patented ""revolving gun"" to the market. The Patent Arms Manufacturing of Paterson, New Jersey had been chartered the month before (March 5) and promised Colt a commission for each sale in exchange for the patent rights. Due to the popularity of the patent, Colt had a monopoly on revolver manufacture until 1857."
1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 1

Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.
1861

Age 26

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).

Name Meaning

1 English: from a medieval personal name brought to England by the Normans, of uncertain origin. It may be the Hebrew personal name Lot ‘covering’, which was relatively popular in northern France, or a reduced form of various names formed with the diminutive suffix -lot (originally a combination of -el + -ot), commonly used with women's names.2 English: from Middle English lot(t)e ‘lot’, ‘portion’ (Old English hlot), in the sense of an allotted share of land, hence a status name for someone who held such a plot.3 Dutch: metonymic occupational name for a plumber or lead roofer, from lood ‘lead’.
