Summary Before New Jersey became the garden state, it was a tiny colony on the Atlantic Coast where the revolutionary spirit appeared long before America s fight for independence. This information-rich text invites readers on a journey through New Jersey s colonial past, covering its time spent as a Dutch claim, its role as British colony, and its contributions to forming the United States. Readers will learn about key historical figures and important events, early America s industrial and social climate, protests against taxation, and the Revolutionary War through the lens of New Jersey s history. Informational maps, primary sources, and age-appropriate language bring history to life for modern readers. Detailed Table of Contents, Glossary, Index, Web Sites, Primary Sources.
