The illustration I have created is showing Henry Clay balancing the power in congress between the free and slavery states. This relates to the Missouri compromise because the issue was the balance of power in congress. The main idea of the Missouri Compromise was to balance power in congress between free and slave states. It accomplished this by making Missori a slave state, and Main a free state. The Missori Compromise was a good soulution becase it balanced power between slave and free states.
