It puts the U.S on the road to civil war because of the difference of the revolution on the north and south. The south goes through an economic transformation because they rely on cotton which was not big in the 18 th century. Within 3 years, the amount of growing cotton has increased by millions and continues to increase.

The technologies had increased which made cotton production easier, previously people wear homespun. In 1765, the spinning jenny is invented; it turns fibers into yarn, much faster rate than before. In the past only wealthy could wear cotton but now it can be massed produced. It effects the north because the change contributed to the market revolution, because cotton mills and textiles factories opened in Rhode Island in the 1790’s. Inside a mill, women would spin fibers into thread. Most of the laborers in the factories are women who are not yet married, called Waltham system.
