The pre-Civil War textile industry in Lowell, Massachusetts exemplified the American industrial revolution and heralded a nationwide shift from farm to factory. During this time, technological innovation, investment capital, entrepreneurship, new methods of industrial organization, and labor provided by "mill girls" propelled large-scale manufacturing in an important U.S. industry.
