Age 2

A strike involving more than 2,000 workers from 20 textile mills in Paterson, New Jersey. Many of those involved were children, Irish, or both. The primary goal of the strike was to reduce the daily working hours from 13.5 to 11. Employers refused to negotiate, but the strike ended with a declaration that the workdays would now be 12 hours during the week and 9 hours on Saturdays. Paterson employers also blacklisted many of the strike leaders and their families.

Age 3

Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.

Age 28

No Civil War battles took place within the state boundaries of New Jersey, but its citizens participated extensively in the war. Volunteers that were turned away ended up serving in the militias of nearby states like Pennsylvania and New York. Whenever President Lincoln requested more troops, New Jersey responded quickly. In total, the state contributed over 88,000 soldiers (6,000 of which died).
