Cotton Plantation On The Mississippi
Photograph - Photograph
Lithograph entitled "A Cotton Plantation on the Mississippi." By 1850, the South was exporting over one million tons of cotton annually to the hungry textile mills of England. Cotton was king in the South and its increased labor demands invigorated the institution of slavery. By the beginning of the Civil War over 3 million slaves tilled the South's soil. A plantation is an artificially established forest, farm or estate, where crops are grown for sale, often in distant markets rather than for local on-site consumption.
