About New Jersey

New Jersey was home to Native Americans for more than 2,800 years. The dominant tribe when Europeans arrived in 17th-century New Jersey was the Lenape. The first European settlements were established in New Jersey by Dutch and Swedish colonists. Later, the British seized control of New Jersey and created the Province of New Jersey. It was named after Jersey, the largest of all the Channel Islands.

A large and diverse population was attracted to the colony by its fertile lands, relative religious tolerance, and diversity. New Jersey was one of the Thirteen Colonies that fought Great Britain. It hosted many pivotal battles as well as military commands during the American Revolutionary War. The state remained with the Union through the American Civil War and was a major center of manufacturing and migration. It also helped drive the nation’s Industrial Revolution and hosted many technological and commercial innovations until the mid-20th Century.
