Eli Whitney
By Mary L. Bushong
Translation by Traductor TT
  

1     ¿Por qué deberíamos estudiar a Eli Whitney, el inventor de la desmotadora de algodón que es realmente una máquina antigua que se inventó hace mucho tiempo?
 
2     Los inventos de Eli Whitney, aunque parecen simples según los estándares de hoy, cambiaron el curso de la historia estadounidense.
 
3     Eli nació en Massachusetts, pero después de recibir su título universitario en Yale a los 27 años, viajó al sur para trabajar en una plantación. Allí oyó a los agricultores hablar sobre los problemas del cultivo del algodón. La dificultad principal era la dificultad para obtener buenas ganancias, porque el trabajo de separar la fibra de algodón de las semillas demandaba mucho tiempo. Separar una libra de algodón de sus semillas llevaba un largo día de trabajo.
