Cotton DBQ question!!!

Can anyone help with this topic?
In what ways and to what extent did the invention of the cotton gin, the mass cultivation of cotton, and early abolitiomism affect the southern economy and the expansion of slavery?

Can someone help me with three main ideas, and a thesis. This is due tomorrow so I need quick help. Thanks
