Review of Industrial Development and Manufacturing in the Antebellum Gulf South: A Reevaluation by Michael Frawley (LSU Press, 2019):

Per the review, the author's thesis (which looks at Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama - surprisingly not Louisiana) is more industry in the South in 1860 than was previously known, which reveal shortcomings of the 1860 census.

Disclaimer: not my review. This is the first I've heard of the book, but it sounds like an interesting study.

Read it in July. And did find it an interesting study. Frawley used a large number of newspapers, R. G. Dun Credit Reports and Federal documents to piece this study together.
