    1819 · Panic! of 1819

    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.

    1832 · The Black Hawk War

    Age 17

    Convinced that a group of Native American tribes were hostile, The United States formed a frontier militia to stop them in their tracks. Even though Black Hawk was hoping to avoid bloodshed while trying to resettle on tribal land, U.S. officials opened fire on the Native Americans. Black Hawk then responded to this confrontation by successfully attacking the militia at the Battle of Stillman's Run and then left northward. After a few months the militia caught up with Black Hawk and his men and defeated them at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. While being weakened by hunger, injuries and desertion, Black Hawk and the rest of the many native survivors retreated towards the Mississippi. Unfortunately, Black Hawk and other leaders were later captured when they surrendered to the US forces and were then imprisoned for a year.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Spanish Jose, Pedro, Aurelio, Belen, Eusebio, Fidel, Francisco, Gaudencio, Marciano, Maximo.

    Hispanic (Mexico and the Philippines): from the Spanish and Catalan personal name Nabor, which was borne by a Christian saint believed to have been martyred in Milan in the 4th century, about whom nothing else is known. The personal name is probably a derivative of Hebrew barar ‘to choose, to purify’, which evolved into nabar ‘honest, ernest, clean’.
