You Never Disappoint; If you read it again, Mr Roman says Cotton isn’t that Important to Louisiana. The most important thing is Commerce, or Trade. Might want to Google New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the Mississippi River. May help with your Understanding, or it might add to your Confusion?
All your post shows is what it actually says, not what you think it says.
What is amazing is how willing some seem to be at any twist, any glimmer of hope, that supposedly shows their view to be the right one.
Your post did not show that, not even close.
PS: maybe you should Google the Kenner Mission or read the book, Look Away! : History of the Confederate States of America, by William C. Davis. On pages 59, 60, 101, 167, 362-363, 376, 380, 402 and 408, you'll read all about Duncan Kenner and his story.
It's much more informative than Jim's tidbit.
