    Abstract

    Before the American Revolution, many colonial laborers settled in rural, agricultural regions. For the initial settlers, the most important considerations were of securing sustenance, shelter, and clothing for survival. The founding of mills enabled the settlers to utilize the natural resources available to them in America; these resources helped them to construct homes and businesses, create clothing, and make food. This article looks at the development and use of Mills during the American Revolution.
