Cotton - Wikipedia
By the 1840s, India was no longer capable of supplying the vast quantities of cotton fibers needed by mechanized British factories, while shipping bulky, low-price cotton from India to Britain was time-consuming and expensive. This, coupled with the emergence of American cotton as a superior type (due to the longer, stronger fibers of the two domesticated native American species, Gossypium hirsutum and Gossypium barbadense), encouraged British traders to purchase cotton from plantations in the United States and in the Caribbean. By the mid-19th century, "King Cotton" had become the backbone of the southern American economy. In the United States, cultivating and harvesting cotton became the leading occupation of slaves.

Cotton Plant Commercial Historic District
The Cotton Plant Commercial Historic District encompasses the historic civic and commercial center of the city of Cotton Plant, Arkansas. It includes about two blocks of Main Street (Arkansas Highway 38), between Elm and Ash on the south side, and between Pine and just short of Vine on the north side. The district includes 19 historically significant buildings dating, most of which were built between about 1900 and 1930. The town grew as a railroad shipping center for cotton beginning in the 1880s, but major fires in 1901 and 1924 devastated parts of its downtown, resulting in a large number of early 20th-century commercial brick buildings. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.

Nicholas Charles "Nick" Cotton is a fictional character from the British soap opera EastEnders played by John Altman on a semi-regular basis from the soap's debut episode on 19 February 1985. The character made numerous brief or more protracted stints until his onscreen death in February 2015; his death written to coincide with the 30th anniversary of EastEnders. Nick Cotton is notably responsible for the death of Reg Cox (Johnnie Clayton), who is discovered unconscious in the very first scene of the programme in 1985 and is revealed in the following episode that Reg has died. Nick's death was scripted as somewhat of a reenactment to Reg's death, as the character dies in the same spot where Reg had died 30 years prior. Nick's primary function is as an antagonist, a drug-user and a murderer. He was conceived by the show's creators, Tony Holland and Julia Smith. A late inclusion to the original cast line-up, Nick was included based on writer feedback to Holland and Smith's original script, which centred around the murder of Reg Cox, whose killer they had not originally intended to reveal. Nick was created to be the assailant and to provide the show with more dramatic storyline potential. During his time on the show, Nick has embarked on multiple feuds with Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick), Michelle Fowler (Susan Tully), Mark Fowler (David Scarboro/Todd Carty), Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin), Tony Carpenter (Oscar James), Ali Osman (Nedjet Salih), Pete Beale (Peter Dean), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Clyde Tavernier (Steven Woodcock), Nigel Bates (Paul Bradley), Den Watts (Leslie Grantham), Eddie Skinner (Richard Vanstone), Charlie Cotton (his late father) (Christopher Hancock) and Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack). Nick is used as an 'out and out villain'. It was suggested by Executive Producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins that unlike other soap characters who behaved badly and required a more nuanced characterisation and redemption, it was possible to use Nick as a complete "bad guy". A television critic for The Guardian suggested that, for this reason, the character's dastardly motives were rarely questioned by viewers, as his primary function is that of "an agent of chaos". It was also suggested that Nick's appearances on the show needed to be brief because the level of malevolence he portrays could not be sustained in a character over longer periods. Nick's most prominent relationship is with his mother Dot Cotton (June Brown). It is portrayed as complex, dysfunctional and somewhat cyclical, with Nick perpetually entering his mother's life, her forgiving him for past misdemeanours (including an attempt to kill her to steal her bingo winnings), then being let down when Nick's true intentions are revealed, often ending in his banishment; albeit temporarily before the cycle repeats. Nick's eventual demise in 2015 plays homage to this relationship, with Dot - finally realising the extent of Nick's villainous behaviour and accepting his inability to change - ultimately deciding to allow Nick to die, rather than seeking medical assistance after he has a fatal reaction to heroin. Her motive being to let Jesus decide whether Nick should live or die.
