Cotton Gin

Katelyn McGee

Report

Greene supported Eli to build a cotton gin because the lack of money with a large amount of cotton seeded everywhere, it needed to be processed quicker than hours. He made it to produce more cotton and make it easier to clean. Now with more cotton they got more money and more clothes.

The cotton balls with seeds are place in the first part, you crank it and it pulls the seeds out brushing the clean cotton to the last part of the container. The old cotton gins were hand cranked and it was small so it couldn’t produce as much, as fast. Cotton gins are much bigger now and can produce more cotton at a time. The way it woks is the cotton balls with seeds are place in the first part, you crank it and it pulls the seeds out brushing the clean cotton to the last part of the container. Also the cotton gin caused the Civil War.
