Storyboard Text

  • The issue of slavery was still present during the drawing of the U.S. boundary lines. Mississippi was added on to the union as a slave state, but this would upset the balance of free and save states in the union.
  • Northerners VS Southerners
  • Everyone was upset. The North was filled with abolishionists who wanted to abolish slvery, whereas the South was filled with people who supported the idea pf slave states.
  • Free state VS slave state
  • FINDING A SOLUTION... Tensions were high between the north and the south, and people were getting angry. They thought there'd be an imbalance of free to slave states. But, a man by the name of Henry Clay made the Missouri Compromise, which gave Missouri a title as a save state. It also banned slavery from anywhere north of the compromise line.
  • Example of how people wanted different things at the time of the Missouri compromise...
  • Were anti-slavery! And we want new states in the union to be free states!
  • Were Pro-slavery! And we want new states in the union to be slave states!
  • These events were important because this act helped hold the union of states together for a long time. It also helped make a compromise between the north and south on free states and slave states.
