  21. Components of the Arc • Alabama-Mississippi: “Black Belt” of favorable soils and topography for cotton farming • Georgia: “Fall Line,” Remained somewhat marginal as production shifted from Piedmont to Coastal Plain? • South Carolina: Voting patterns anti-correlated to Cretaceous, correlated with lower Tertiary. Explanation?

  22. Factors in Development of the Arc • Pre-Civil War spread of agriculture and slavery • Disruption by Civil War • Realignment of agricultural patterns after boll weevil • Black emigration • Advent of fertilizers and shift of production from Piedmont to Coastal Plain.

  23. Questions • Why does black population linger along this feature? • What is the connection in South Carolina?
