Hi Im Henry CLay Also known as "The great comprimiser"
A long long time ago the North wanted to divide the state into the 36 30 line rule and they did but it wasn't easy.
Missouri came in as a slave state but the north got mad because the votes would be uneven. I worked my butt off trying to settle the dispute.
The North wanted all free states and the South wanted the slave stated and they divided it by the 36 30 line rule and the West had the ability to vote to help decide if Missouri was going to be a slave state or a free state.
Hi, Im senator Stephen Douglas. I am the person who made the bill that divided the land west of missouri into two territories, kansas and nebraska also argued for popular sovereignty which gave new settlers to decide if slavery would be legal there.
As trying to run for president against President Abraham Lincoln I lost and then thought of the idea to run for senator which I won.Now I was known as the Senator Stephen Douglas.I also passed a law that said the the North could have popular sovereignty.
