Long Description: In the early 's, the "Mill Girl Experiment" sought to entice farm girls to come into the cities; with promises of girls in manchester nh employment, unheard-of wages, structured living, and moral guidance. Many young women did accept the offer, and the woolen mills provided what they had promised.
What hadn't been stipulated formed a balance: This, and the worldly influence of the urban settings which inevitably changed their mannerisms and outlooks, and distanced them from their families and their provenance. The owners of girls in manchester nh mills were nu demonized for usurping and exploiting their female employees; oratory from pulpits described a slippery slope for the once-scrupulous ladies.
In retrospect, they played a crucial role in blending the disparate populations of girls in manchester nh and industrial districts, necessary to form a strong, cohesive nation. When the 'experiment' waned, they were each replaced by a newly arrived european immigrant, and the cycle began.
