First settled as part of New Netherland, each year since has brought moments to remember. In this collection, Jersey authors Joe Bilby, James Madden and Harry Ziegler present some of these events from each year. Some are well known and important, like the Revolutionary War Battle of Trenton and the many patents filed by Thomas Edison.   Others are quirky, such as the birth of the creator of Felix the Cat in 1892 and the opening of America’s first traffic circle in 1925. And still others are proud, like the many ways Jersey regiments have served the United States. Discover more than 350 trials and triumphs that have shaped the Garden State.  Buy Now By Joseph G.
