National Civil War Wax Museum- Life in the South

In this shot of from the National Civil War Wax Museum, we see a typical scene of the American South before the Civil War. Slaves are picking cotton for the wealthy slave owners. The crop of cotton was a driving factor in the "need" for slaves, and the export and use of the material only drove the south further into the slave trade. As more territories became states, the balance of Slave and free states became harder to control.

This scene is done fairly well, with its use of a mural to create greater depth in the tableau.
