After a while in the south slavery slowly was starting to decrease, but when the Cotten Gin was created slavery boomed. Owners of slaves would usually treat their slaves badly. Children would be separated from their parents. They wouldn't be fed. They had to work when they were sick or pregnant. It was a cruel thing and it only happened because cotton became easier to work with and they could plant more. Yes it did help the economy it didn't help the slaves.
