“New Jersey’s Historical Suitcase” is a blog about the long history of one of the original colonies in the United States, New Jersey. This blog will document some of the interesting lore contained within the state, along with interesting places of history you could visit yourself.

The writer of this blog is George Macey, a History student from Rowan University. He also studies International Studies, Journalism, and the Spanish language.


“Living in New Jersey all my life, I want to show everyone what I have seen and what I have enjoyed about my home. NJ is more than a reality show, highways, and a gambling hub. For more than 350 years, we have a storied history that will be sure to peak your interest.”
