  • Missouri Compromise
  • Well if Maine wants to be a state too then why doesn't one group have Missouri and one have Maine
  • And why don't we set a border for which states are slave states and which aren't
  • Free States
  • Slave States
  • "Sounds good to me!"
  • "Sounds good to me!"
  • Missouri wants to be a state and says that they think they should have slaves. After Missouri wants to be a state so does Maine.
  • The problem is that there are currently 11 Free states and 11 Slave States so if they categorize Missouri as a Slave State then there will be an extra Slave State and vice versa.
  • The Missouri Compromise, proposed by Henry Clay says that the Free States will have Maine and the Slave States will have Missouri and now there will be a border between the Slave States and the Free States.
