JAMES HENRY HAMMOND
American politician
(1807 - 1864)

Cotton is King.
      - a phrase used in the U.S. Senate [Slavery]

No, sir, you dare not snake war on cotton. No power on earth dares make war upon it. Cotton is king. Until lately the Bank of England was king; but she tried to put her screws as usual, the fall before last, upon the cotton crop, and was utterly vanquished. The last power has been conquered.
      - [Political Economy]

The very mudsills of society. . . . We call them slaves. . . . But I will not characterize that class at the North with that term; but you have it. It is there, it is everywhere, it is eternal.
      - in a speech in the U.S. Senate [Slavery]
