From a tour of the wonderful Frogmore Plantation (the original plantation name) now owned by the Tanner family, several miles west from Natchez in the Louisiana flatlands. It’s both a large, operational cotton plantation and regional cotton gin (an entire modern factory that processes cotton from the picked boll thru carding, cleaning, grading, and bundling into 500-pound bails) and a nicely preserved museum of historic cotton cultivation and processing practices from the late 19th and early 20th century.
PS — I will be inviting many of the addressees of this note to join the MEANDERS.groups.io email group, in order to save typing (and too often, forgetting to type your email address every time I think you’d be interested). Just accept the invite — it’s a 15 year old group that has existed on two major platforms — it won’t bite.
