A cotton gin is a machine that quickly and easily separates cotton fibers from their seeds, allowing for much greater productivity than manualcotton separation. The fibers are processed into clothing or other cottongoods, and any undamaged cottonwas used for clothes.
The steam engine was a revolutionary invention and radically impacted the period of early industrialization in the United States, especially in the formative years of the Nineteenth Century. It was quickly applied to power factories and growing industries - quickly replacing the use of water power - and it was used by Peter Cooper to drive his railroad engine and by Robert Fulton for his steamboat.
In 1785, Edmund Cartwright invented the first power loom. The power loom was very important in life because it was a machine that would weave stuff into textile. It was important because it made things faster for the factory.
