  • a major provision of the Missouri compromise was that slavery was not to exist above 36 30 N. this satisfied the North, since slavery would not be able to expand past this imaginary line drawn across the Louisiana purchase
  • that is good thanks to the Missouri compromise
  • now slavery is not to be exist her
  • for the Norther free state, New York senator James Tallmadge proposed and amendment banning slavery in the Louisiana territory, in addition, senator Rufus King also argued Congress had the power to determine whether or not a new state could have slavery
  • that is a good idea
  • my new amendment is banning slavery
  • Missouri was added as a slave state
  • for the Southern slaveholding states, Missouri is added to the Union as a slave state. Although it exists above the dividing line, the addition of Missouri as a salve provides balance to the Union in terms of free and slave states, and representation in congress
