The industrial revolution in 19th-century New England described in the words of the workers. Even after long work hours, mill women of Lowell, Massachusetts--the first female industrial wage earners in the United States--found time and energy to write about their lives and aspirations in their own magazine, the LOWELL OFFERING. These writings provide a rare, firsthand glimpse of women's lives in 19th-century America. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
