Mervy Michael HIST 366-001/ Prof. Moran Final Paper 12/2/14 Topic 2: Protest versus Accommodation: The W.E.B. Du Bois & Booker T. Washington Debate Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Du Bois are revered as two of the most important figures in black history. Booker T. Washington was born a slave to a black mother and white father. Throughout his whole life he was quite poor and from a young age worked in salt mines. Through a scholarship, however, he was able to study at Hampton Normal Agricultural Institute of Virginia and years later he graduated in 1875.
1 The history of what is now known as Cramer Hill in Camden stretches back to the 1870s. At the time, that portion of the city was unoccupied after the Native Americans had been driven out. A small colony of African-Americans had located to the northeast and nearer to the river, and they called their settlement East Camden. The only resident on the South Hill was an old African-American woman known as Aunt Rosy. She had a small hut on the Hill, but was actually a “squatter,” having taken possession of land that belonged to a Mr. Thomas F. McKeen.
Tobacco production not only helped the colony grow prosperous, it also created new opportunities for over 90,000 immigrants who moved to the colony as indentured servants. Similarly, the New England economy was based on trade in the fishing and timber industries because of easy access to ports and wooded areas. Like Chesapeake families, New England colonists farmed, however, New Englanders practiced subsistence farming, small family farms which produced only enough food for a single family’s use. Another similarity between the two colonies is how both colonies dealt with the Indians. In the Virginia colony, Powhatan’s brother, Opechancanough, led a surprise attack on Virginia colonists and murdered over 300 of the 1,200 men in the colony.
In my opinon without the cotton gin slavery might not have lasted as long as it did. It began with Eli Whitney when he was born in 1765, he noticed the slaves having a hard time picking the tough cotton from its sticky seed. So when he got older and smarter he invented the Cotton Gin so they wouldn’t have such a hard time with it. The Gin was a simple machine that had a big impact on the South.
By 1819 new states were all being added as slave states. Missouri in 1821 which was not part of the original N.W and S.W ordinance was a new slave state. Planters thanks to Eli Whitney, were now able to grow different types of cotton that was better suited for the internal lands of the U.S. Northern states were worried about the increasing slave states because it meant that there was a growing southern power in the house of Reperesentves. In 1821 Missouri was admitted into the union in 1820 because of the Missouri compromise. This meant for the admission of Main as a free state.
Industrial Revolution Essay The cotton gin was a major impact on America. It impacted America by Southern planters beginning to plant more cotton.

Smaller gins could be cranked by hand; larger ones could be powered by a horse and, later, by a steam engine. Whitney's hand-cranked machine could remove the seeds from 50 pounds of cotton in a single day. (Bellis.M) • Revolutionary Cotton Gin This machine boosted the cotton production to many folds by reducing the amount of labor needed to seperate cotton from seeds.
