With the Aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars the global market for trade was down. During this time, America had its first financial crisis and it lasted for only two years.

On January 28, 1820, the New Jersey Legislature incorporated the City of Jersey from parts of the Bergen Township. The city would be reincorporated two more times (January 23, 1829 and February 22, 1838) before receiving its official name. Jersey City became part of the new Hudson County in February of 1840.

Age 28

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.
