Take a walk down manufacturing history lane as we learn about transitioning from Industry 0.5 to 1.0 during the American Revolution with our guest Dr. Robert Smith, provost of Valley Forge Military College and author of the book Manufacturing Independence: Industrial Innovation in the American Revolution. Smith's book recounts how the Continental Congress mobilized the nation's manufacturing sector for war. During the conversation with Dr. Smith, we inquired: How were weapons made in the colonies before the Revolution? What problems did we face in terms of supplying the Continental Army? And how did U.S. manufacturing change in the aftermath of the Revolution? A great listen for any U.S. history, manufacturing, or technology fan.
