Summary
Eli Whitney liked nothing better than working with his hands. Whenever he had a free moment from his chores - for his father was a thrifty Massachusetts farmer and kept his sons busy - Eli could usually be found in his father's shop. It was an unusual workshop for a Colonial farmer of the 1770's, because Mr. Whitney liked tools and had almost every kind that was made. Nothing seemed too complicated for young Eli to repair or copy. He became one of the first American inventors, and his achievements changed the course of American history
