Cotton Gin

People Who Invited The Cotton Gin

Eli Whitney

Why He Invited It


Because "green seed" cotton, the only strain that would grow

inland, took too long to cull from its seeds. To sift out a single "point" of cotton lint from its surrounding seeds required ten hard hours of hand labor.

When He Invented It

1794


How Would You Sell It

I would tell people how many seeds it seeds in a 30 minute period then I would tell the other features of the machine and say how it would help people.
