Lets give the slaves a break

Eli Whitney's Invention

  • Eli Whitney made a invention in 1793 called the Cotton Gin, made cleaning process more effective. Cotton was easier to get from the farms now because the Cotton Gin separated the seeds, thorns and stem away from the main part called Cotton. Slaves picked out more cotton then ever. Farmers moved farther to the west to grow their own cotton.
