An article that didn't upset me for once.“Tobacco was the backbone, not just of the economy, but of culture and society,” he remarked.Yeargin also talked about different types of tobacco and techniques that were developed over the years. He then spoke about the tobacco industry in Surry County and what it still means today. According to Yeargin, there were 21 plants for tobacco production in Surry County in 1893, and that grew to 45 in 1927, which employed 2,875 people here.
I enjoyed every word. :)
