  • Northern Free States: Why did they oppose it?
  • Northern states: No slavery!
  • Southern States: Since we are in the South, we can still have slave states because we are below the 36-30 line!
  • Northern Free States: Beliefs and Congressional Power?
  • We the federal government agree that this state is a slave state, and this other state, is a free state. 
  • Northern Free States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • The darn Missouri compromise is letting new slave states form!
  • Ah I feared this would happen..
  • The Northern Free States opposed the Missouri Compromise because they wanted to abolish slavery, but the Compromise made it so slave states could for below the 36-30 line. 
  • Southern Slave States: Why did they support it?
  • As long as your slave state is below the 36-30 line, we won't get mad, or bother you. 
  • We support the Missouri Compromise and we want another slave state! 
  • Northern states believed in federalism so they thought the federal government should be able to decide if it was a free state or not.
  • Southern Slave States: Beliefs about states' rights?
  • The Northern Free States feared that there would be slave states forming, and the compromise allowed that. 
  • Southern Slave States: Fears about the Compromise?
  • I fear that the compromise will abolish slavery due to the addition of two new free states... 
  • Southern Slave States supported the Missouri Compromise because they wanted another slave state and they would get to have Missouri as a slave state. Northerners would not get mad if there was a state with slaves below the line. Kept peace.
  • The Southern Slave States beliefs about states' rights were that  Southern slave states came from the early republicans that believed that states' rights were superior over the federal government. Calhoun argued that neither congress or any territorial government had the authority to ban slavery or regulate it in any way.
  • Neither congress or the government can regulate or control slavery at all. 
  • The Southern States feared that the compromise would make it so there was two more free states than slave states in congress and that slavery would be abolished so no one would work on plantations.
  • YES!!
