Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Why did they oppose it?
  • I wish that slavery would end! 
  • Yeah! I don't like the new Compromise Congress is passing because it will mess up the balance between free and slave states.
  • Northern Free States: Beliefs about Congressional Power?
  • It just isn't right that Congress is punishing all African Americans.
  • We need to do something about this.
  • Northern Free States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • Oh no! I fear that the territories below the 36-30 line will turn into slave states!
  • Yeah, us Northerners and our anti-slavery notion are done for!
  • The Northerners didn't approve of the new Compromise fearing that it will mess the balance of free and slave states. 
  • Southern Slave States: Why did they support it?
  • Oh boy! This new compromise is great.
  • The Northerners believed that Congress had no right to pass law punishing free and enslaved African Americans. 
  • Southern Free States: Beliefs about Congressional Power?
  • We should be able to choose whether we want slavery or not because slaves are personal property.
  • The Northern/free states feared that the compromise would strengthen slave power because there were much more territory/states below the 36-30 line.
  • Southern Slave States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • They think that Mexico territory will become a slave state. They knew there was Texas, New Mexico, California, and other regions that were below the line. 
  • I agree. There is much more territory below the 36-30 line that we can convert to slave states.
  • The Southerners thought that Congress had no control over whether a state is a slave state or not. They believed that slaves were considered property, so they could do whatever they wanted to with them. 
  • Like my vase!
  • The Southerners thought that they used the compromise as a smokescreen to bring back the Federalist party. 
  • The only reason why this compromise is passed is because the Northerners are using it to hide the fact that they're bringing back the Federalist party. 
  • Yeah, why else would they want it passed.
