Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free states Why did they oppose? 
  • We need to abolish slavery and this new compromise won't help us do so
  • Northern Free States Beliefs and Congressional Power 
  • I now declare Maine a free state 
  • Northern Free States  Fears About The Compromise 
  • The balance of free state and slave state are equal. Adding another state will make it unbalanced
  • Slave states- 11
  • This means either slave states or free states will have more representatives
  • Free States- 11
  • The Northerners didn't want the Missouri compromise to be passed because they wanted to ban slavery and this wasn't helping their plan to do so. 
  • Southern Slave States  Why Did They Support The Compromise 
  • Have a slave state over the 36-30 line will help expand slavery to the north.
  • Northerners believed that congress should decide whether or not the state should be a free state for a slave state. 
  • Southern Slave States  Beliefs About States Rights 
  • It's time for the states to decide whether or not it is a slave state
  • The Northerners feared that the compromise would upset the balance of free states versus slave states.  It was good for them though because they had more unsettled land in the north that would become free states. 
  • Southern Slave States Fears About the Compromise  
  • Maybe if the government allows one state above the line maybe they will allow another
  • The southern states  supported the compromise because it allowed there to be an extra slave state above the 36-30 line.  
  • Southerners were always a fan of states rights (popular sovereignty) , this is why they thought states should decide whether or not it was a slave state. 
  • The southerners liked that Missouri would  become a slave state because they thought that if the government would allow one slave state above the line they would allow another.
