Storyboard Text

  • Now that we have a high population and economy, we should apply for statehood.
  • Missouri should be a slave state since its economy is based around it.
  • Missouri is now a state.
  • But this would upset the balance of free and slaves states and future elections.
  • If Missouri becomes a slave state, new states will think that slavery is necessary for statehood acceptance.
  • If Missouri is considered a free state, slavery may become banned, making us have to close down our farm. We need the workers.
  • These Northerners are trying to take our slaves away!
  • I am Henry Clay, and I have a solution called the Missouri Compromise.
  • Missouri will be a slave state and Maine will be a free state to balance the number of electoral votes.
  • Yes, this is fair!
  • In addition, all new states north of the Southern Border of Missouri (36-30 latitude) shall be free while new states South of the line will be slave states.
  • Slavery is a against our morals! We must end it permanently!
