The Cotton Kingdom by Fredrick Law Olmsted

Legendary landscape architect Olmstead recorded his observations on the cotton economy of the American South on his many travels. Although The Hermitage was a cotton plantation, Andrew Jackson knew the crop could not be the permanent mainstay of the farm. The problems that plague Jackson’s plantation under his son’s management can largely be traced to the uneasiness of the cotton market as the Civil War drew near.
