    1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

    Age 1

    A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.


    Age 3

    "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."


    Age 24

    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.
