Made in the U.S.A.

In our reading, the author talked about the importance of homespun and its influence on the politics at the time. During this time, as Americans were beginning to assert their independence, it was important that Americans began making their own textiles and products so as to no longer depend on foreign goods. I decided to take a photo of the tag of a shirt that said “Made in America.” This was important during this time in history, but it’s also an important movement today that we focus more on domestic manufacturing than manufacturing abroad.
