Revolutionized the printing process

Johannes Gutenberg 1398-1468

  • Invented moveable metal letters (type)

  • Oil based ink

  • A wooden screw type manual printing press

Gutenberg combined all three of these inventions into a practical process that allowed for the mass production of printed books that did not cost a lot of money. This allowed for reading material to be widely distributed and revolutionized the book making process.

1765- 1825 The Inventor of the Cotton Gin

  • Cotton Gin’s purpose was to separate the cotton seeds from the cotton fibers.

  • Made it faster and more profitable to process cotton.

Large cotton plantations were soon established which needed large quantities of workers. The cheapest labor available was slaves so plantation owners purchased additional slaves to work these farms. As a result the Cotton Gin and Whitney are directly credited with encouraging pre-Civil War slavery.
