The inspired mechanical genius of Eli Whitney was responsible for innovations that gave the United States its great advances in industrialization. His invention of the cotton gin, a machine that separated cotton fiber from the plant’s seeds, revitalized the Southern economy. His later invention of interchangeable parts, which he first used to secure a government contract to produce a large number of guns, laid the foundation for the American system of manufacturing.
