  • The Kansas and Nebraska act
  • Hi my names time and  I'm going to be your guide through The Kansas and Nebraska act
  • The Kansas-Nebraska Act created further divide in the nation, as it essentially rendered the Missouri Compromise obsolete.
  •  This is because it enabled the people in these territories to decide for themselves on the legality of slavery, despite the territory being north of 36°30° (Missouri Compromise line)
  • They failed because they couldn’t come to an agreement and used violence to try to solve their issues.
  • There was attempted compromise with the voting for whether they wanted the law to be put into effect in Kansas.
  •  but these compromises were not successful because there were several disagreements and calling out amongst the pro-slavery and anti-slavery settlers and eventually “Bleeding Kansas” took place and there was much violence.
  • The North strongly disagreed with this act because the Missouri Compromise had success, but was repealed by the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
  • The South agreed with the act of course because they supported slavery and wanted states to be able to decide for themselves if they wanted slavery.
  • The Kansas-Nebraska Act significantly shifted the political landscape of America. The bill created a split in the Whig party, with northern Whigs opposing the bill and southern Whigs supporting it (thus forming the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively). This political divide further generated animosity between the north and south, and is perhaps the most significant factor in precipitating the civil war.
