Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States:   Feelings about state additions?
  • Congress will become unbalanced!
  •          Northern Free States:     Feelings about the 36o 30' line?
  • SOLD
  • Northern Free States: Who was involved?
  • We can't let this happen!
  • The northern states opposed state additions because of the unbalance it would cause in Congress, which would only lead to more slave states being added.
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about state additions?
  • More states mean more of these!
  • They northern free states felt pretty good about the idea of the 36o30' line because they thought only of the Louisiana Territory, and how little they could make of it as slave states, but not Texas because we had signed a treaty not to mess with the Mexicans land.
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about the 36o 30' line?
  • Abraham Lincoln, John W. Taylor, and Stephen S. Douglas
  • Southern Slave States: Who was involved?
  • The Southern States agreed with the idea of state additions because they knew the majority of the added states will oppose as being added as free states, which will end up upsetting the balance in Congress, which will give them majority rule when the time comes to vote. 
  • The Southern States liked the idea of the 36o30' line because even though they couldn't make slaves states above that line, they assumed that people from the New Mexico territory will ensure that those states will be added as slave states.
  • SOLD
  • Henry Clay, James K. Polk, and Zachary Taylor
  • We have to make this happen!
