  • The Missouri Compromise
  • All states above the 36 30 line will be free
  • All states below the 36 30 line will be slave

  • The Dred Scott Decision intensified the dispute over slavery because it angered the North and the justices declared slaves were not people. They also said that Congress didn't have the power to declare a territory free or slave.
  • Sectionalism
  • Compromises were made to help tension between the North and the South. Some of these compromises were the Compromise of 1850 Missouri Compromise. This stated that Maine became a free state and Missouri became a free state. Then, any state above the 36 30 line was free and any line below the line was slave. Another compromise was the Compromise of 1850.
  • Compromise of 1850
  • Take this slave back to its owner!
  • No you are not! It is the law! We must return you to your master!

  • Sectionalism was an important factor that led to the division of America. The South felt strongly for their region and customs. Economy was more significant than social values, slaves weren't people but they were considered property. The North believed in unity and as it states in the constitution "all men were created equal." South supported individual rights, they believed they were in a loose alliance with one another.
  • This compromise had California become a free state but because it was below the Missouri Compromise line (36 30) the Fugitive Slave Act was put into place. All runaway slaves had to be moved to be captured and returned to the South. Georgia's platform stood in agreement to this compromise .
  • I am in the North, I am a free man!
  • Mostly slaveholders in the South, abolitionists in the North, and politicians were involved in the disputes over slavery. Some events that caused the dispute over slavery were the Dred Scott Decision and the Fugitive Slave Act.
  • I think that slavery should spread to all new territories.
