Northern Opinion of Missouri Statehood
Southern Opinion of Missouri Statehood
The Northerners did not like the Missouri compromise because they had less power. The South had more states than the North. To fix this, what used to be a part of Massachusetts, Maine, it counted as a free state. That made the power stable.
The Missouri Compromise was when Missouri wanted to become a slave state. That became an unbalanced amount of states that had slaves. So to keep it balanced, Maine was added as a free state. The second part of the compromise was that there was a line drawn above the Arkansas territory that said anything above 36/30 would be a free state and anything below 36/30 would be a slave state.
The Southerners favored the Missouri compromise because they got another slave state. This gave them more power because there were now 12 slave states and 11 free states.
