Eventually Louisiana became a slave state to balance it . Adding Maine was a free state and Missouri was a slave state preserving the sectinal balance . The Louisiana territory was split into two spheres of interest one for slaveholders and one for free settlers. The dividing line was set at 36 30 north latitude. South of the line slavery was legal . Then North of the line except Missouri was illegal.
