Want to know more about the Belper man called ‘Father of American Manufactures’? There are still copies of the 2006 DVD and book available, so the production company responsible – Maypole Promotions – have produced a fresh trailer. See link below.
Samuel Slater – Hero or Traitor? is a local historical project about a man who was dubbed by President Andrew Jackson the ‘Father of American Manufactures’, but who is virtually unknown in the land of his birth.
New detailed research into Slater’s 21 years in Derbyshire uncovered new aspects of his early life which can be read in a book or seen on a DVD, both still available.
