The beautiful Garden State, or as many know, New Jersey, became the third state to ratify the U.S. Constitution and first to sign the Bill of Rights. Down the street from Princeton, New Jersey is the state capital, Trenton. Speaking of Trenton, the Battle of Trenton was such a small yet significant piece during the American Revolutionary War that greatly strengthened the morale and united the colonial army and militias. this beautiful state that I call my home has such significant history for myself as well as our country.
