The Lottery has long been used to raise money for good causes. In the early years of America, the Continental Congress voted to establish a lottery to help fund the American Revolution. Though this scheme failed, smaller public lotteries were deemed a way for states to raise money through voluntary taxes. Many American colleges were built with money raised through these lotteries. In addition to the federal government, private lotteries were also popular, both in England and the United States. In 1832, the Boston Mercantile Journal reported that there were 420 lotteries in eight states.
