Summary
This documentary traces the history of America{u2019}s textile industry from its origins in the British Industrial Revolution to today{u2019}s technologically advanced manufacturing processes. Milestones in industrial development include Samuel Slater{u2019}s first textile mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island; the industrial community of Lowell, Massachusetts; the industry{u2019}s post-Civil War shift to the rural Piedmont region in the South; and exploitative labor practices that led to union organization. Remaining competitive in a globalized economy will be a challenge in the 21st century
