Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Why did they oppose it?
  • Slavery has still not been completely abolished! 
  • Yeah. That's true. Slavery is still possible below the 30^0 36' line!
  • Northern Free States: Beliefs about Congressional Power?
  • Federal Government Meeting Should it be a slave state?
  • Yes. This state will become a slave state. 
  • Southerner Representative 
  • Northern Free States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • Now you cannot stop us from having slave states. We will not stop the spread of slavery!!! 
  • Northerner Representative 
  • Even with this compromise, we have no rule over if the southerners want to have a slave state. 
  • The Compromise did not completely abolish slavery. Anything below the compromised line was capable of becoming a slave state. 
  • Southern Slave States: Why did they support it?
  • They believed that Congress should have the power to decide if a state would be pro-slavery or not.  They believed in a federal gov. instead of a state gov. 
  • Southern Slave States: Beliefs about states' rights?
  • State government
  • Federal Government   
  • They feared it would not end the spread of slavery and that it would cause tension in state and federal governments. 
  • Southern Slave States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • When I speak, I speak for all southerners because I don't think it is right for Northerners to be given more space.      
  • Northerner Representative 
  • It would keep the peace between north and south. Missouri would become a slave state.  The northern would not get mad if there was a slave state below the line. This picture shows a slave owner with his slaves on his farm full of cotton.  It would also keep the balance of slaves. 
  • Hurry up you slaves. This work must be done by sundown! 
  • Southern slave states came from the early Republicans that believed that state’s rights were superior to the federal government. Calhoun argued that neither Congress nor any territorial government had the authority to ban slavery or regulate it in any way.
  • Government should leave us and our slaves alone! They don't control us. 
  • They thought it was an end to slavery because it was limiting the number of slave states there could be.  They also felt it was unfair to them because it was a smaller space than what was given to the northerners. 
  • Southerner Representative 
  • HAHAHA!!! We have been given more space than you because of the compromise
