about 64 halcs. Ten yenrs later another

a mlll run by stoam power, was erect-id

A mlll nt Cumherland nnd one on Ala

Georgla, now third in Importance, was
seeond among the Southern States to
Legin the manufacture of cotton. As
early as 1798 a cotton mlll company was
lncorporated, but there ls nothlng to
show that organiration urider the char- j
ter was ever completed. ln 1809 there ,
was a small mlll In operation at Louis- I
ville. The flrst cotton mill of any Jrm j
portanco in tbe State was the Bolton
factory. and was built ln 1S11 on Cpton
creek; nlne miles southeast of Washiug- j
ton. ln WUkes county. The mill was sixty
by forty feet. two stories. attic and base
rrient. and was constructed of brown
stone. In March. 1S27. th* foundatlons of
a mlll wlth 1.000 spindles and thirty
looms, was lald at Moore's Mlll, four
miles from Athens. Thts was the see?
ond in the State ruh by other than horse
power. In 1828 four mills are said to
have been constructed and put Into
operation, one at Augusta, two at Mil
ledgevllle and one at Indlan Springs. ln
Butts county. A mlll was also built at
Athens ln 1834. In 1837 a mill was ln
operation at Columbus and one was built
at Roswell in 1839. In 1S46 two mllls
were constructed?one at Troup Factory
and one at Waymanville. In 1840 there
were nlneteen cotton mllls in operation
In Georgla, operating 42.589 spindles,
and consumlng approximately 1S.150 bales
of cotton. In 1SS0 there was a mill built
at Jewell, Hancock county. Three mllls
aro sald to have been In operation In
1S50 at Columbus. The flrst of the mills
which have made Augusta so prom- j
Inent as a cotton manufacturing center
was erected ln ]SSS. A mlll was built at
Snoal creek, ln 1860.
UndoubtdK the manufacture of cotton j
was bc-gun by Virginia at a very early |
date, perhaps a? early as any other
State, but the reeords aro not clear as >
V> when the flrst cotton factory was es- i
tabllshed. Gallatin'a report shows that a
cotton mlll was in operation ln Foterfi
burg in 1809. oporated by water power.
According to the report of the secre
tary of the treasury made to the Senate
in 1824. three cotton splnnlng mllls had
been lncorporated under State laws, one
In each of the counties of Bedford,
I^tilsa and Powhatan. The census of
1820 dld not retum any mllls In opera?
tion. nnd tho retums showed only three
thousand pounds of cotton consumed.
McGregws Oommerclal 8tati:stlcs
enumerates only seven mllls In cpc-ratlon
In 1831, working 9.SI4 spindles and .con
Humlng 1.152.000 pounds of cotton. But j
the date of the erectlon of those mllls or
thelr locatlon aro not glven. In 1833 a I
slte was donated and J120.000 was sub- ;
fcrlbed for the establishment of a mlll
at Foleriiburg. H is uncertain whether
the project wns a euccess. Thero Is no
douht that a few years lator two cotton
mllls were erected at Matoacn, neor
l'etorsburg. One of the mllls went Into
operation in 1838; the other mlll may
havs been in operation a yoar or two
rarller In 1838 an -fTlclal report stated
that there was one cotton mlll ln opera?
