I chose Eli Whitney for my monument project. I chose him for many reasons, he made many changes in society which has led us up to where we are today. He studied at Yale first in 1789 to become a lawyer, but later figured out that he could design and build. He went to build the cotton gin, yet didn’t get the recognition that he deserved in the beginning. After not getting recognized he went to push the industrial parts mode of production. Then in 1794 Whitney had finally been able to patent the gin and had become very successful making the cotton industry increase. After Whitney had become so successful he decided that he would start designing more inventions when he had the time. This is why I chose Eli Whitney.
