Age 1

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 · Worcester v. Georgia

Age 10

In 1830, U.S. President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act which required all Native Americans to relocate to areas west of the Mississippi River. That same year, Governor Gilmer of Georgia signed an act which claimed for Georgia all Cherokee territories within the boundaries of Georgia. The Cherokees protested the act and the case made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The case, Worcester v. Georgia, ruled in 1832 that the United States, not Georgia, had rights over the Cherokee territories and Georgia laws regarding the Cherokee Nation were voided. President Jackson didn’t enforce the ruling and the Cherokees did not cede their land and Georgia held a land lottery anyway for white settlers.

Age 25

A battalion of volunteers from New Jersey assisted during the Mexican-American War. They were active from 1847 to 1848 and divided among four companies. The battalion assisted during the Battle of Contreras and the Battle of Churubusco.
