1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 0

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.

Age 2

New Jersey was the first state to ratify Prohibition, the short-lived constitutional ban on alcoholic beverages.

Age 24

Camp Kilmer was activated by the War Department in June 1942 following roughly one year of construction. The camp was named after Joyce Kilmer, a New Jersey poet from the 69th Infantry Regiment that had been killed during World War I. The post served as a place for soldiers to receive medical injections and supplies before loading onto ships headed to Europe. After the war, the camp remained active until the fall of 1949 to assist with processing troops that returned home from Europe.

Name Meaning

Italian (southern) and Spanish: habitational name from any of numerous places named with arena ‘sand’, ‘sandy place’, also ‘arena’, ‘(bull) ring’.
