In colonial America, there were over 200 lotteries between 1744 and 1776. The money raised by these lotteries was used to build roads, colleges, and libraries. The Academy Lottery was used to fund the University of Pennsylvania. Other colonies used lotteries to fund local militia and fortifications. In 1758, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts raised money through a lottery to fund an expedition against Canada.
