             Historical note 
             Tobacco was the state's biggest cash crop, and by 1820, Kentucky was producing twenty percent of the nation's tobacco. The flourishing of Kentucky's economy came at a cost to the individual tobacco farmers, however, and many tobacco farming families suffered poverty and disease.
