The State of South Jersey

Once upon a time, in 1980, Seaside Heights joined dozens of other municipalities from nine southern NJ counties in supporting a movement to secede from “North Jersey.” A proposed state flag and map prompted Governor Byrne’s staff to start a whisper campaign promising that National Guard soldiers would be activated if the insurrection continued.  Note: Yes, I am aware of the fact that I posted this on Independence Day.
