New Jersey stood alone

Description

Everything is legal in New Jersey. Including, til 1807 voting by white women who owned property & were unmarried. If married, their legal existence (and property) disappeared into their husband. If Black, they were likely enslaved: NJ clung to slavery until 1846. #StateOfTheWeek
