纽泽西 (New Jersey) 通过宪法

他的昵称是「花园之州」 (Garden State) ,同时也是美国发展最完善且最工业化的州之一。除了有知名的沙滩与在亚特兰大市主办美国小姐的活动外,他还出口货物到世界各地。这是那个地方呢?在西元17871218日通过宪法,纽泽西成为继达拉威尔与宾州第三个添加联邦的成员。这个多元的州有着相当长的历史。在美国独立革命之前,纽泽西本是约克公爵 (Duke of York) 的土地。在1676年被分隔成不同的部分,交由不同的管理人管理,后来更多次的分割,直到17024月安妮皇后 (Queen Anne) 在位的时候,才又重新结合在一起,交由一个省长来管理。

It is nicknamed the "Garden State," and yet it is one of the most developed and industrialized states in America. Famous for its beaches and for hosting the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, it also exports manufactured goods around the world. What state is it? Approving the Constitution on December 18, 1787, New Jersey became the third state to join the Union, following Delaware and Pennsylvania. This diverse state has a long history. Prior to the American Revolution, New Jersey was part of the original land grant to the Duke of York. It was divided up among different caretakers in 1676, and divided again and again until Queen Anne, in April 1702, reunited the land into one province with one governor.
