A little bit of history

  • Delaware Indians

  • The first people to live on the land now known as New Jersey were the Delaware Indians. They lived here starting at least 10,000 years ago.

  • Around 1524, Giovanni de Verrazano became the first European to explore New Jersey.

  • In 1664 the Dutch lost New Netherlands when the British took control of the land and added it to their colonies.

  • For many years, New Jersey shared a royal governor with New York. The governorship was finally split in 1738 when New Jersey got its own governor, Lewis Morris.


  • In the years before the Revolution, anti-British feelings spread throughout the state. About one-third of the people living here supported the rebels, one-third supported England, and one-third remained neutral. In 1776 New Jersey declared itself an independent state and joined the colonial side in the Revolutionary War. New Jersey was an important state during the Revolutionary War because of its location near the center of the thirteen colonies and between New York City and Philadelphia. Because of this, more battles were fought in New Jersey than in any other state. The Americans and British fought 100 battles, both large and small, here.


  • In 1787, New Jersey became the third state to ratify the U.S. Constitution and the first state to sign the Bill of Rights.

  • New canals and railroads helped industry grow. Europeans came by the thousands to New Jersey to work in the factories.

  • During the Civil War, New Jersey provided 31 regiments (groups of soldiers), including cavalry (soldiers on horseback) and infantry (soldiers on foot). Over 25,000 New Jersey men fought for the Union, and New Jersey soldiers participated in almost every major Eastern battle.
