A map of US cotton production in 1880 with charts showing figures for the import and export of cotton from 1821 to 1880.
This document has three sections. First, at the top center, is a chart that shows the number of bales of cotton produced in the United States each decade from 1850 to 1880. Longer horizontal green lines indicate a larger number of bales. Second, the central portion of the document contains a map that shows where cotton was produced and in what amount in the United States in 1880. The darker green the county, the more cotton was produced there. Finally, at the bottom of the document is a chart that indicates the money made through the import and export of cotton by the United States. Longer horizontal green lines indicate larger amounts of money.
