From the Back Cover:

From its beginning as a small but sought-after European outpost, New Jersey has played a key role in the establishment and growth of the New World. One of the thirteen original Colonies, New Jersey today is well known for its progressive-minded residents who take pride in their state’s long history. It Happened In New Jersey goes behind the scenes to tell its story, in short episodes that reveal the intriguing people and events that have shaped the Garden State. Learn about John Honeyman, a Patriot spy who risked his life for George Washington’s troops, effectively turning the tide of the American Revolution. Relive the legendary blizzard of 1888, a deadly "perfect storm" of frigid temperatures and historic snowfall that swept in without warning and paralyzed the East Coast for days.  Laugh till your sides hurt through a humorous retelling of the 1938 farcical “news” radio broadcast that sent panicked listeners fleeing for their lives from an imaginary alien invasion. Follow the now-famous "Jersey Baboon" as she tweets her adventures while scampering through the yards of unsuspecting neighbors after her escape from a zoo.
