Around 1819, a senator by the name of Henry Clay came up with the Missouri Compromise
I think I found a way to decide on how slave states are divided up!
They added Maine as a free state in the north so that Missouri could become a slave state.
What about the north?
Yea! If Missouri becomes a slave state, everything is going to be thrown off
This made the distribution of slave states to free states equal.
They also made a 36 30 line that states that anything above that line, no slavery is allowed. Below that line, slavery is legal
But what about the other states in the West?
Finally! Some Balance in power over slavery!
This compromise lasted 30 years until California decided to enter as a free state in 1850
