Northern Free States: Feelings about state additions?
Adding Maine and Missouri to the union was no problem, because it kept the balance in the senate equal.
Northern Free States: Feelings about the 36'30' line?
We really screwed the south over on this 36'30' line deal.
Yah, the land we get compared to them is almost twice as much
Northern Free States: Who was involved?
Mr. Douglas and Mr. Cass did a great job on that compromise
The North liked the way that the compromise handled the addition of Missouri and Maine into the Union, because it handled the balance of free states and slave states, by balancing it well.
Southern Slave States: Feelings about state additions?
At the time of the Missouri compromise, the North liked the deal they got. They liked it because between the land above and below the 36'30' line, they got more land to settle, and make free states.
Southern Slave States: Feelings about the 36'30' line?
WE WANT TO CHANGE THE LINE! WE WANT TO CHANGE THE LINE!
Steven Douglas and Lewis Cass were the two leading Northern congressmen in the debate that lead to the Missouri compromise.
Southern Slave States: Who was involved?
The South did not like the way that the compromise added both Missouri and Maine. This is because if it was just Missouri being added to the union, they would have the advantage in the senate, but with Maine it goes back to being balanced.
WHY DID STEVEN DOUGLAS HAVE TO COME UP WITH THE COMPROMISE!!!
The South did not like the 36'30' line, because at the time that the deal was made, they got almost half of the land that the North did.
John C Calhoun and Henry Clay were leading southern congressmen who were in the debate for the Missouri compromise.
