This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some final thoughts. The emergence of the postwar merchant class changed the face of the Natchez District. Using their position in the cash-credit nexus and their growing control of local political and civic organizations, they fostered countless changes and improvements in the region: building and developing railroads, infrastructure, cotton mills and manufactories, and commercial and residential buildings, all the while becoming leading proponents of Gilded Age business, organizational, and technological innovations.

Keywords:   Natchez District, merchants, merchant class, cotton mills
