The Cotton Gin
By: Kalayah Wells 6A
How the cotton gin affected us then and now.
- The cotton gin sped up the process of cotton picking
- It increased the amount of thread (which increased the amount of clothes made)
- It also caused a lot of conflict about slavery back then.
- Without it, we wouldn't be making the clothes like we do now
- we would probably still have to pick cotton if it wasn't for this invention.
