The purpose of this paper is to give an approximate idea of the extent to which commerce developed between southern Indiana and the South prior to the period beginning with 1850, as well as to show how this mutual interdependence led to the formation of strong economic ties between the two sections. There is also an attempt made to show that this economic interest strengthened the social ties naturally resulting from the fact that a large percentage of the early settlers of southern Indiana came from beyond the Ohio River.
