The Cotton Belt in the South and its Effects

The cotton belt's massive economic success effected the institution of slavery and Southern society as well as creating a regional economy. The key to the cotton boom in the 1800's was the cotton gin. The cotton gin extracted seeds from short staple cotton 50x faster than hand. It could be powered by horses or water. Even though the revolutionary device was invented by Eli Whitney, other farmers stole his idea and created their own. The ability to produce cotton productively demanded labor, and slaves were imported to the US in great quantities. Slaves worked using the gang labor system which meant that all the slaves, women, men, and children, worked at the same time doing the same task. Many Southerners believed that God meant for some people to rule over others. This justified the cruel treatment given to slaves and fueled the institution of slavery.

Thomas Jefferson: A Biography

Many strong and reputable leaders use their oratory skills or other traits to build their reputation, but Thomas Jefferson displayed a quite different and unique style of leadership. His countless successes made him one of the most valued presidents, although he had some failures in his time. The third president of the United States' casual and friendly approach shocked many people. One man even thought he was a vagabond when he walked to his inauguration in casual brown clothes. Thomas Jefferson enjoyed reading and did so often, sometimes for 15 hours straight. He was also a very talented writer. The bulk of his talent was used to write. Jefferson set crowds of men, women, and children crying out for independence and rebellion from the crown when he wrote one of the most important documents in United States history, The Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson helped the country endure many hardships and is honored today for his contributions.
