Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Feelings about state additions?
  • The 36'30 line is trash! It expands slavery and Missouri is a slave state!
  • True, but we should be grateful that Maine is now a free state!! It keeps the balance!
  • Northern Free States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • The line isn't specific! What if a state is above and below?? Is it free?
  • You're right that is doesn't clarify, but at least we have the majority of land above it!!
  • I'm Henry Clay!! I created the Compromise!!
  • Northern Free States: Who was involved?
  • And I'm Daniel Webster!
  • Don't forget me, Stephen Douglas!!
  • The 36'30 line said that no new states could be created north of line. This made the north unhappy because it allowed for slavery to continue to expand. Yet they were happy that Maine was introduced as another non-slave state.
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about state additions?
  • We can create new states, we maintain the balance, and we get Missouri!! Win-win!
  • Yes, but it's a limitation on slavery!! What southerner wants that??
  • It didn't end slavery and just expanded it even more.  It also didn't specify states that were in the middle of it and if they should be declared slave or free. At this time, they accepted the line because the majority of uncontrolled land was north of it.
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • The line is a compromise; we don't completely agree, but it's alright for now...
  • But also, more regulations on the expansion of slavery are yet to come!!
  • Some leading Congressmen involved were Speaker of the House Henry Clay who divided the compromise into 3 proposals. Two other important men who made a difference in the Compromise were Daniel Webster and Stephen Douglas.
  • Southern Slave States: Who was involved?
  • We're Thomas Cobb and John C. Calhoun, leading Congressmen of the South!!
  • They supported it because it maintained balance in Congress. The 36'30 line said that no new states could be created above 36’30 line, but states could be created below 36’30. The line favored southern states. But the South didn't want a regulation on slavery.
  • The line represented compromise; the South weren’t completely for it, but they were willing to compromise for it. They also feared that if Congress passed this one act, they would want to pass more and more and eventually they would want to abolish slavery. They also saw the Compromise as a slippery slope.
  • Two leading Congressmen that were involved in the Missouri Compromise were John C. Calhoun and Thomas Cobb.
