From Cotton to Cloth: Step by Step


Author(s):
Abstract:
Cotton manufacturing reached the North Carolina Piedmont in the 1820s. Although the industry grew, North Carolina remained the poorest state in the South in 1860. However, by 1900, North Carolina, mostly because of the textile industry, was the South's leader in industrialization. Bonham examines a 19th-century cotton mill and describes the process for turning raw cotton into cloth.
