    this is what i found in my book:
    To keep up with the increase demand for raw cotton, planters bought more enslaved Africans to work on the new and expanded cotton plantations. the enslaved population of the South more than doubled from 700,000 to 1.5 million. Many Americans had expected slavery to fade away gradually, but the cotton gin put an end to that dream

    hope this helps you out :]
