The Cotton Kingdom V2

A Traveler's Observations on Cotton and Slavery in the American Slave States (1861)
  • By Frederick Law, Jr. Olmsted
Product Description
The Cotton Kingdom V2 is a book written by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1861. Olmsted was a traveler who spent a significant amount of time in the American slave states, where he observed the cotton industry and the practice of slavery. The book provides a detailed account of Olmsted's experiences and observations during his travels. The book is divided into chapters that cover different aspects of the cotton industry and the slave system. Olmsted discusses the process of cotton cultivation, the economic importance of cotton to the American South, and the impact of slavery on the region's social and political systems. He also describes the daily lives of slaves, including their living conditions, work routines, and relationships with their masters. Throughout the book, Olmsted provides a critical analysis of slavery and its effects on both slaves and slave owners. He argues that slavery is a morally corrupt institution that dehumanizes both slaves and their masters. He also critiques the economic and political systems that support slavery, arguing that they are unsustainable and ultimately harmful to the American South. Overall, The Cotton Kingdom V2 is a comprehensive and insightful account of the cotton industry and slavery in the American slave states. It provides a unique perspective on a dark period in American history and sheds light on the complex social, economic, and political forces that shaped the region during this time.Based Upon Three Former Volumes Of Journeys And Investigations By The Same Author.
