That investors should be able to take physical possession of the cotton which underpinned the bonds if the South failed to make its interest payments. Collateral is, after all, only good if a creditor can get his hands on it. And that is why the fall of New Orleans in April 1862 was the real turning point in the American Civil War. With the South's main port in Union hands, any investor who wanted to get hold of Southern cotton had to run the Union's naval blockade not once but twice, in and out.Niall Ferguson Southern Cotton Sayings By Niall Ferguson: That investors should be able to take physical possession of the cotton which underpinned the

The air was hot, vivid and breathless

Together, cotton and slavery would ensure that there would be no war. Since southerners did not want an armed conflict, it could only come as a result of northern aggression. But northerners would be insane to attempt to challenge the South militarily. Alexander Stephens, soon to become Vice-President of the Confederacy, was not an ardent secessionist. But he struck the same note as the most extreme secessionist when he declared that there was "not a flourishing village or hamlet in the North, to say nothing of their towns and cities, that does not owe its prosperity to Southern cotton". Moreover "England, with her millions of people and billions upon billions of pounds sterling, could not survive six months without it".John Ashworth Southern Cotton Sayings By John Ashworth: Together, cotton and slavery would ensure that there would be no war. Since southerners did

Brewer: The curtains were not yet drawn and with the moonlight spreading across the room, I
What was very interesting to me about Clementine Hunter's work is that she couldn't read or write, and she has recorded history of the plantation life and the southern part of the U.S. - the cotton harvests, pecan picking, washing clothes, funerals, marriages - in pictures.Robert Wilson Southern Cotton Sayings By Robert Wilson: What was very interesting to me about Clementine Hunter's work is that she couldn't read

Before the Civil War, the Southern states were selling a lot of cotton to England and didn't seem to mind British occupation.

The cotton gin made it possible to grow medium- and short-staple cotton commercially, which led to the spread of the cotton plantation from a small coastal area to most of the South. As cotton planting expanded, so did slavery, and slavery's becoming the central institution of the Southern economy was the central precondition of the Civil War. WhatNicholas Lemann Southern Cotton Sayings By Nicholas Lemann: The cotton gin made it possible to grow medium- and short-staple cotton commercially, which led

Those with black skin could have been annihilated more easily. But they were the labor pool with which to break strikes. They served as the pickers of cotton, the diggers of ditches.
