About this title


Focusing on the day-to-day operations of the U.S. armory at Harpers Ferry from 1798 to 1861, this book shows what the "new technology" of mechanized production meant in terms of organization, management, and worker morale. A local study of much more than local significance, it highlights the major problems of technological innovation and social adaptation in antebellum America.
