THE WHITE MAJORITY A commercial middle class of merchants, bankers, factors, and
lawyers emerged to sell southern crops on the world market. They lived in cities that acted as
shipping centers for agricultural goods. Two-thirds of all southern whites lived in
nonslaveholding families. Most yeomen were self-sufficient farmers whose strong sense of
community was reinforced by close kin connections and bartering. But between 30 to 50 percent
of southern whites were landless. These poor whites lived a marginal existence as laborers and
tenants, at odds with slaves, but also engaging in complex and sometimes clandestine relations
with them. Some yeomen hoped to acquire slaves themselves, but many were content with selfsufficient
non-market agriculture. Yeomen supported slavery because they believed that it
brought them higher status.
PLANTERS Most slaveholders owned only a few slaves and frequently drifted in and out of
that status as bad crops or high prices curtailed or increased their income. Middle-class
professionals had an easier time climbing the ladder of success. Andrew Jackson used his legal
and political position to rise in Southern society. Beginning as a landless prosecutor, he died a
plantation owner with over 200 slaves.
Most slaveholders inherited their wealth but sought to expand it. As slavery spread so did the
slave-owning elite. The extraordinary concentration of wealth in places like Natchez created an
elite lifestyle. But most wealthy planters lived fairly isolated lives. Although some planters
cultivated an image of gracious living in the style of English aristocrats, the reality was that
plantations were large enterprises that required much attention to a variety of tasks. Plantations
aimed to be self-sufficient.

Evidently you only know business that require employees with no training, no skills, no push.

Look, Oh great & wonderful stay-at-home businessman, I've run a few companies & plants & I offered all the benefits - full paid healthcare, vacations, sick says , life insurance and a good living wage. And over the many years, I only had one employee leave to work elsewhere.

I wasn't the highest paying shop in town but everyone wanted to work with me.

I had super employees that did a great job & we all made lots of money.

But hey, you go ahead & hire part timers at minimum wage & see what you get.

My God, you people act like you know something about running a business? Please, you obviously don't know sh*t.

Following southern paternalism, in theory, each plantation was a family with the white
master at its head. The plantation mistress ran her own household but could not challenge her
husbandís authority. They frequently spent extended periods isolated on rural plantations. With
slaves to do much of the labor conventionally assigned to women, it is no surprise that plantation
mistresses accepted the system. The slave system rested on coercion and violence. Slave women
were vulnerable to sexual exploitation, though sometimes long-term relationships did develop.
Children of master-slave relationships seldom were publicly acknowledged and often remained
in bondage.
THE DEFENSE OF SLAVERY Slavery lay at the base of southern society and gave rise to
various pro-slavery arguments. In the post-Revolution era, Southern whites found justifications
in the Bible or by pointing to classical Greece and Rome. They pointed out that the Constitution
recognized slavery and that they were defending property rights. Fearing slave revolts, growing
abolitionism, and the cutting off of expansion, by the 1830s southerners barricaded themselves
against outsiders and to stifle debate on the subject. But they also developed arguments that
slavery was good for the slaves. George Fitzhugh contrasted slavery, which created a community
of interests, with the heartless individualism that ruled the lives of northern factory workers.
Despite efforts to stifle debate, some southern whites objected to slavery. The growing cost of
slaves meant that the percentage of slaveholders was declining and class divisions widening.
Hinton Rowan Helper denounced the institution, indicating tensions between rich and poor in the
South. But the lines within the South remained tightly drawn.
CONCLUSION The cotton economy had grown rapidly, but slavery was an international
anachronism, out of place in the modern world.

Look at the nature of the Southern economy and show students why expansion was so
crucial. As it was the clash over the expansion of slavery that led to the Civil War, this
would seem a crucial point. Emphasize the inefficiency of slave labor and that
slaveholders found it cheaper to keep moving rather than maintain their soil. This created
a society that was hungry for fresh lands and set in motion a chain of events that led to a
confrontation with the equally land-hungry North.
2. Examine the role of the nonslaveholders. Emphasize their importance to the maintenance
of the slave system. Examine why they supported the slave system, even though they did
not own slaves. Emphasize that the yeomanry in the plantation areas had connections
with slaveholders and that non-plantation yeomen wanted to be left alone. See Bill Cecil-
Fronsmanís Common Whites (Kentucky, 1992) on this point.
3. To discuss slave life, divide the lecture in half. The first half would examine the brutality
of the slavesí existence. The second half would examine how the slaves were able to
survive. Focus on how the institution stripped slaves of their dignity, but that they were
able to forge an existence that allowed them some degree of control over their own lives.
Make the connection to the material in Chapter Four on the development of African-
American culture.
