The Textile Mills

The first textile mill in 1793 owned by Smith Brown, William Almy and Samuel Slater the man who introduced textile mills to the United States. Textile mills being built all over the United states helped mass produce string and cloths. When Samuel Slater later died in 1832 he was a part of 13 textile mills.

Samuel Morse

Samuel Morse invented the telegraph to send long distance messages in minutes using Morse code which he co created with his partner. Samuel Morse was born in 1791. Samuel Morse graduated from Yale in 1810 wanting to be a painter but his father wanted him to be a book publisher. Samuel's love for painting had his father change his mind and allow Samuel to study art in England. He adopted a romantic style of painting. He returned to America in 1815 and set up a studio in Boston. In 1836 Samuel made the first prototype of the telegraph.
