Description

This unique journal was created to honor the rich history of St. Croix. 📗

🍃 SUGARCANE WORKERS 🍃

During the Danish times, harvesting sugarcane was the principal staple and practically the only revenue producer for the islands.

In fact, at one time, the island was one of the wealthiest islands in the West Indies.

Because of overproduction throughout the sugar-producing world, however, the sugar values dropped.

"It was a sad realization when planters realized that the capital they invested in expensive sugar machinery would likely rust than wear out."

🍃 SEA ISLAND COTTON 🍃

By 1906, many thought that cultivating Sea Island Cotton would be better, but growing cotton was very different from sugar.

Sugar produced green feed which fed the island's livestock through the dry season and produced bedding for cattle.

Cotton neither gave green feed for stock nor covering for the land and changing from cane to cotton would be costly.

Sugar prices continued to fall due to the increasing competition from beet sugar.

After the United States annexed the islands in 1917, production diminished considerably.

According to the 1930 census, only 5,823 acres were under sugar cultivation in 1929, and the annual yield was 56,400 tons as compared to 84,000 in 1917.

Today, the island's revenue is generated through tourism and agricultural pursuits.

This journal is perfect for research notes or memoirs and would make a great gift or keepsake for someone who loves the island's history.
