Change in our Cotton Manufactoring
It is the 60th anniversary that the inventor from Westborough Massachusetts, Eli Whitney has perfected the Cotton Gin. The cotton gin was the answer to our manufacturing problems. The cotton gin is a machine for removing the seeds from cotton fiber.Machines like these have been around for centuries. Eli Whitney's machine of 1794, was the first to clean short-staple cotton, and a single device could produce up to fifty pounds of cleaned cotton in a day. And this product has made it successfully to almost every Cotton factory in the country!
Update! The workers are working super hard to get tracks laid.
Girls were working harder than ever and finally got hours reduced to 11 hours a day!
Steamboat and our transportation

Isaac Singer and his sewing machine
People have been going crazy over his and Edward Clark's sewing machines. This year they've had huge sales. Isaac Singer was born on October 27 1811 in Pittstown, New York. When Isaac Singer was only 12 he left home with little education and worked as a unskilled laborer (from a close source). And then as a teenager he got an interest in mechanics. Singer started working as a sewing machine repairman. In 1850 while working in the repair shop he thought of ideas and improvements to the sewing machine. As an inventor at heart he set of to create the next best sewing machine model. Clark and Singer teamed up to make this and then got it pattened and Elias Howe's tried to sew them for "copying" his sewing machine and they won that debate. And now Singer has become a house hold name.
Steam power is becoming more and more popular. More and more business are moving closer to the city and company's are growing bigger. And now we are having more trains being brought to railroads across the North. And it has been a ton of help in our textile industry's and now don't have to be by a body of water.
