Review:

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.
