In the antebellum south, where cotton plantations spread seas of white across the countryside and southern hospitality reigned supreme, people would be "walking in high cotton." This saying came to be when the crops were good and the price of cotton was better. Plantation owners would find themselves in a very good situation. As time went by and cotton farming in the south became less prevalent, the saying survived in the form of slang. Now, the modern day etymology is "the best of times" or "a time of well-being."
