Any Territory west will be free! Also, Missouri is slave state now, and Maine is free!
Fugitive Slave Act of 1850
Where are you boy! I came all the way north to get you! Come here!
Uncle Tom's Cabin of 1852
Uncle Tom's Cabin
Slavery is wrong. Why have a human being own another human being as if an animal? How can people live with themselves knowing they take apart families, fathers,
daughters, and wives, and killing them for or from exhaustion, and it's all because of the color of their skin and the bad cards they were given.
Everywhere north of the 36;30 line is free, anything south of it are slave states. Missouri would be a slave state, and this would make Maine a free state. Lastly, Any territory west would be free unless changed.
Kansas Nebraska Act
This law allowed men from the south retrieve there runaway slaves from the north.
Dred Scott Decision
I grant this case in favor of the plaintiff. You...Mr.Dred Scott shouldn't even be in my presence of me because you don't even classify as a citizen.
Uncle Tom's Cabin was a book to inspire abolition and to explain why slavery was wrong. It was made in 1852.
My stance is that we need to eliminate any new slave states. This needs to stop.
Near chaos happened when Kansas and Nebraska were left to the the states to decide if it should be free or not. Also, this basically washed the Missouri Compromise away.
This was a big step toward the war because this was an incredibly racist trial, and a black man was basically denied their right to even be called a citizen.
The L D debates were super big because they went over important issues such as slavery, black rights, and the Dred Scott case.
I think that instead of making complicated areas where slavery is and isn't allowed, lets just let the states decide.
