Seed Drill In The 1700's

Good Essays

The invention of the seed drill was really one of the most useful inventions in that time because it helped make the farmers work easier. The seed drill was created by Jethro Tull to make the lives of the laborers easier and not waste the seeds of what could’ve been a surplus of food.

Jethro Tull, the inventor of the seed drill, was born on March 30, 1674 and died on February 21, 1741. He was born in the United

    Illnesses of the 1700’s There were many illnesses in the 1700’s and 1800’s that were life threatening, or even a sure death, that are in current times, not a concern, or highly curable. Examples are smallpox, bubonic plague, typhus, mumps, influenza, yellow fever, and measles. These diseases almost single handedly wiped out several native American tribes, and wreaked havoc on European communities. Small pox, overtook half of Boston in 1763.
