Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Why did they oppose it?
  • Missouri will give slave states an upper hand in the government.
  • Also, we can't have any slave states in the North!
  • Northern Free States: Beliefs about Congressional Power?
  • The federal government needs to take control of this country.
  • Yeah, they should decide whether a state is free or slave.
  • Northern Free States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • The Compromise will allow slavery to expand.
  • It might even expand into the North.
  • Northern free states opposed the Missouri Compromise because it would upset the balance between slave and free states. They also didn't want any slave states in the North.
  • Southern Slave States: Why did they support it?
  • I really hope this compromise gets passed because we at least have a chance to get more slave states.
  • The northern free states believed that federal government should have more power and decide for the states whether they are a slave or free state.
  • Southern Slave States: Beliefs about states' rights
  • The states need to have more power and be able to nullify laws.
  • The northern states feared that the Compromise would not get rid of slavery an that it would let it expand into the North.
  • Southern Slave States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • I like the Compromise, but I am afraid of the federal government abolishing slavery.
  • Southern slave states supported the Missouri Compromise because it would restore the balance between free and slave states and other states would be able to choose to be slave states.
  • Also, Missouri will definitely become a slave state.
  • The southern slave states believed that states should be allowed to nullify any federal law they saw unconstitutional. Also they believed that states' rights shouldn't be determined by the federal government.
  • Yeah, and if we don't the federal government will have too much power!
  • The slave states feared that the Compromise made it easier for the federal government to abolish slavery and therefore the economy and slaves' representation in government would go down.
  • I agree and we would never be able to earn money without slaves.
