The British wanted to maintain their manufacturing advantage, so it was illegal to take the plans for those machines out of the country. It was also illegal for trained textile workers to leave. However, Samuel Slater wanted to go to the United States, so he left Britain in disguise. Once he reached the United States, he built a spinning machine from memory. By doing so, he brought industrialization to America. Which of the following would be the best thesis for an essay that summarizes Samuel Slater’s influence on history?
