1823

"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."

1832 · Black Hawk War

"The Black Hawk War was a brief conflict between the United States and Native Americans led by Black Hawk, a Sauk leader. The war erupted soon after Black Hawk and a group of other tribes, known as the ""British Band"", crossed the Mississippi River, into Illinois, from Iowa Indian Territory in April 1832. Black Hawk's motives were ambiguous, but records show that he was hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been given to the United States in the 1804 Treaty of St. Louis."

1844

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.
