The state made major contributions to the war effort through its textiles industries—blankets, uniforms, socks, tents, etc., and a large increase in farm products. The shipbuilding industry was essential to getting supplies to the front and tobacco factories provided smokes to the GI’s. Other key industries were lumber, minerals, and constructions. There were significant increases in retail sales and transportation.
