Hello, my name is Eli Whitney and I invented the cotton gin.
The cotton gin is used to take the seeds out of the cotton instead of hand picking each seed.
First, you put your pieces of cotton the the very top of the machine.
Then you crank the handle to make the brushes move.
As the brushes are moving the cotton, it's also taking the seeds out of each piece of cotton faster than picking by hand. The seeds are then placed in a separate compartment above the brushes
Then once all of the cotton is through the end of the machine, you are able to make anything with the cotton.
