I know quite a bit about the cotton gin now but I still need some help. How did the cotton gin affect the constitution and the new type of government that was forming when it was invented? I think it may have something to do with the northern states not worrying much about slavery and thus it was not talked about much in the constitution. Im not so sure though.
This site should give you some good ideas.
The cotton gin isn't mentioned in the Constitution. It didn't directly affect government, but did benefit the U.S. economy and therefore provided more money to the new nation.
