Cotton: Bolls, Bales, Batts and Beyond

Historic Brattonsville
10 AM - 4 PM

What does it take to get cotton from the field to a wearable garment? Lots of hard work on an antebellum cotton plantation!Come and lend a hand with the costumed interpreters as they pick, gin, dye and spin the fluffy fiber (using 1840's technology) to produce the cotton fabric that we all know and love to wear.
