Storyboard Text

  • Missouri Citizens 
  • Mr. Congressman, we would like Missouri to finally become a state.
  • That WOULD be a good idea!
  • Missouri should be a free state! 
  • Northern Delegates
  • Southern Delegates
  • Congress is tied at 11 free states and 11 slave states! That would be unfair!
  • Well, since congress is tied at 11 free states and 11 slave states, how about we make  Missouri a slave state and Maine can reenter the Union as a free state so we are still tied. 
  • What do you propose Henry Clay?
  • Also, let us draw a line from  36, 20 degrees north latitude at the Louisiana Purchase Territory. North of that line, slavery will be banned, but south of the line, slavery will be allowed. 
  • Henry Clay's ideas were good temporary solutions, but there was a much bigger issue that would need to be solved: slavery. 
  • Henry Clay's Solution to the border issue also made everyone happy since Northern abolitionists didn't have to put up with slavery and Southern farmers could use the slaves.
