Cotton Panic

Cotton was once as good as gold in Lancashire, the engine for a thriving economy built on the Industrial Revolution. And then in 1861, reality bit: the US Civil War took root, American ports fell silent, the supply of cotton dried up and the prosperous North was brought to its knees. This was the Cotton Famine, and England has never been the same since. Cotton Panic! tells the story of the catastrophe that befell the North and its people, all thanks to events that took place thousands of miles away.
