Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Why Did They Oppose It?
  • The idea of slavery is sick! How can you possibly think you own another human being?
  • We need to end it, slavery can't go on anymore. Half of the states being slave states is too much, we won't stop until 0!
  • Northern Free States: Beliefs About Congressional Power?
  • As a democracy, we have elected our government to make decisions for our future. Slavery is immorally wrong and if we let Congress decide, they shall decide the right fate.
  • Northern Free States: Fears About The Compromise?
  • If slavery is to end, we must start limiting it now. The future of our economy cannot be ran off of slave work, or else the South will reign superior! The compromise guarantees slavery to remain.
  • Northern free states were full of abolitionists who wished to end slavery in the US. The 36, 30 border showed half of the country’s future being ran through slavery, and they wanted the future to be slave free.
  • Southern Slave States: Why Did They Support It?
  • As the petty North tries to abolish slavery, we need to use the compromise to our advantage. It guarantees our economy to remain and continue to prevail!
  • Northern states believed in federalism and the idea of the federal government having the authority to decide the future of the country. They felt that the government should decide for the morals of the country rather than the economy.
  • Southern Slave States: Beliefs About States' Right?
  • Our success and well-being is the top priority over anyone else!
  • Northerners, most of whom favored "free states" in which slavery was prohibited, feared slavery would become de facto in the states carved from the Northwest Territory. The admission of Missouri added to their fears of the expansion of slavery.
  • Southern Slave States: Fears About The Compromise?
  • We have even less than half of the country to use for slaves, what if they limit our space until we have none to use for slavery?!?
  • Southern slave states supported the Missouri Compromise because Missouri was declared a slave state, therefore adding to their future plans of the economic success of the US through slavery. The 36, 30 line guaranteed the future of slavery to survive. They also managed to cheat the line because Missouri was above the line and should have been a free state according the the line.
  • Most Southerners were democratic, and sectionalist. They believed heavily into state rights such as nullification, and were loyal to their state over their country. In regard to slavery, they felt the abolition movements threatened their economy and livelihood.
  • Although the line was guaranteeing slavery to remain in the future, it did act as a limitation on the expansion of it. They viewed it as a step toward a possible complete abolition of slavery, which would destroy the south’s economy, which was cotton dependent. It would completely upset the balance of slave states to free states in the Senate.
