This is horrible. Now slavery will never be abolished.
I know, slavery was never supposed to go on for this long.
Northern Free States: Beliefs about Congressional Power?
I believe the states's should stop whining about their rights. To me, the Federal Government tells me what to, not the states.
Northern Free States: Fears about the Compromise?
This compromise will allow slavery to expand to the west, and will prevent slavery from ever going away.
Too Bad! Slavery Lives!
Northern states just wanted to remove slavery for good. They thought by this time slavery would be abolished. With splitting the country up in half, it showed that slavery wasn't going away anytime soon
Southern Slave States: Why did they support it?
Hey, when the US expands west, I will be able to bring slavery and get super rich!
They believed in congressional powers and believed what the government said was what was going to happen. They were against state rights.
Southern Slave States: Beliefs about states' rights?
The state of Kentucky don't agree with this law. We should be able to nullify, for the government is ruled by the people.
The north feared that the compromised gave slave states more power. They also feared that because of the America's expansion in the West, most of the new states would be slave states.
Southern Slave States: Fears about the Compromise?
Wait a second, all this Louisiana Purchase land would be slave free because it is over the 36/30 line.
Slave states were pleased with the compromise. They were already thinking about expanding west, and with the 36-30 line, most of them would be slave states.
Slave states fully supported states rights. They thought states had the right to nullify laws they didn't agree with. They believed in popular sovereignty, that the government is ruled by the people.
All you southerners do is complain!
The south feared that since the North got the Louisiana Purchase land, most of that territory would become states. Therefore, all of those states would be non-slave states.
Ughhh, why does the North always get the better end of the compromise.
