The earliest instance of American manufacturing COULD be this one ...
When we started researching our month's-worth of manufacturing trivia, I wanted to try to find the earliest instance of Ameican manufacturing.
That's where today's fact comes in. I'm not certain that this is the first case of American manufacturing, but it is certainly among them.
We wish people were as concerned today about dependence on other countries. Instead it seems quite the opposite is true. We see our trade deficit grow almost every month, despite a plethora of reports stating such reliance on foreign countries hurts U.S. national security. So perhaps it's time to take a lesson from our forefathers and foremothers?
