  • I will not be allowing slavery anymore.
  • Who Was Involved
  • I will not allow slavery anymore.
  • Under the Missouri compromise of 1820, Maine is added as a free state. Previously, the land had been a part of Massachusetts. This satisfies those opposed to the expansion of slavery as well as the "slave powers" in Congress.
  • This is now a slavery free state.
  • A major provision of the Missouri compromise was that slavery was not to exist above 36 30'N. This satisfied the North, since slavery would not be able to expand past this imagery line drawn across the Louisiana purchase.
  • This state will also not allow slavery.
  • For the Northern free states, New York Senator James Tallmadge proposed an amendment banning slavery in the Louisiana territory. In addition, senator Rufus King also argued congress had the power to determine whether or not a new state could have slavery
  • Maybe we should be banding slavery to.
  • For the southern slaveholding states, Missouri is added to the Union as a slave state. Although is exist above the dividing line, the addition of Missouri as a slave state provides balance to the Union in terms of free and slave states, and representation in congress.
  • To satisfy the South, it was agreed that slavery could expand and exist below the dividing line drawn across the Louisiana Purchase.
