“Remember what you said?” Eli reminded him. “People have been trying for 2,000 years to invent a way to seed that cotton?”

“Exactly!” Phineas argued. “That’s why there are millions in your invention!”

Eli looked at the two earnest faces in bewilderment. “You seem to forget that I haven’t invented it yet.”

Eli Whitney is famous for having invented the cotton gin, but little is known about the trials he endured as he developed it, the never-ending legal battles he was forced to fight, and his remarkable character and determination throughout the process. The Story of Eli Whitney is an inspiring look at the life of a determined young boy who overcame many obstacles and ultimately helped his country grow and prosper.
