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?

Page 23: Geology and Election 2000

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.

• What is the connection in South Carolina?
