Like a Family: The Making of a Southern Cotton Mill World

http://www.ibiblio.org/sohp/laf/

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: Textile mills built the New South. Beginning in the 1880s, as the South emerged from the wreckage of the Civil War, business and professional men tied their hopes for prosperity to the whirring of spindles and the beating of looms. By the mid 1920s this land of farms and farmers had been crisscrossed by railroad tracks and dotted with mill villages. The Piedmont had eclipsed New England as the world's leading producer of yarn and cloth. World War I marked a turning point in this regional transformation, setting the stage for two decades of modernization and decline that culminated in the General Textile Strike of 1934. Here are oral histories, photos, and other resources documenting this important American story. Standards 8.12.1, 11.2.1 and 11.6.1
