    1. Slavery was fundamental to the lifestyle of southern colonists only after the introduction of the cotton gin. This machine made cotton a profitable cash crop and and increased the requirement for manual labor, introducing the plantation system.
    This is what I have for the first answer I just want to know your opinion about this one what you think about it..

    If this is what you're responding to, it's a decent start.
    Describe and analyze the institution of slavery and access its overall socio-economic impact on the South as well as the Civil War.

    You need to add a description of slavery. Who were slaves? Who were masters? Where did slaves come from? How? Why?

    What does "fundamental to the lifestyle of southern colonists" mean?

    What types of manual labor were required?

    What is "the plantation system"?
