"Keeping animals was important to the founding of the New World, especially as areas became settled and hunting became less abundant. Animals were used for food, but they had other uses as well. Fat from animals was used to make soap, the skins were used for clothing, and tallow was used in candles. Tallow was also used to keep leather supple and water-resistant."
