Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Feelings about state additions?
  • The government should decide on slavery in new states to keep the balance in Congress.
  • Northern Free States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • The 36°30′ line is good because we have more land above, so we can make more states.
  • Also, there is a possibility of free states below the line since there is no law against that.
  • Northern Free States: Who was involved?
  • I contributed greatly to the Compromise of 1850
  • I have been working very hard to make sure African Americans are free. They should not be enslaved simply because of their skin color. 
  • The northerners believed that the federal government should decide whether or not the new state addition was a free or slave state. 
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about state additions?
  • The people deserve the power to choose whether or not they want slavery!
  • They liked the 36-30 line because there was more land above the line, so they had more land to make states. Also, slavery was prohibited above the line, but it was allowed below the line, so there was a chance that free states could be in the south.
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • We can expand slavery west all we want as long as we stay under the 36°30′ line!
  • Stephen Douglas and William Lloyd Garrison were to top two congressmen supporting to the north.
  • Southern Slave States: Who was involved?
  • Southern states believed in popular sovereignty; they believed that the people should have the power to decide whether or not slavery should be allowed.
  • The southerners liked the 36°30′ line because that meant that they could expand slavery as long as it was below the 36-30 line.
  • Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun were the leading congressmen for the south.
  • I advocated for popular sovereignty: people should decide on slavery, not the government
  • I came up with the Missouri Compromise and got Congress to pass it by splitting it into three bills.
