In 1819, the U.S congress decided whether Missouri, a piece of land acquired from the Louisiana purchase, should become a state.
Let's put an end to slavery!
But Missouri wanted to be a state that allowed slavery, meaning being with the confederate and ruin the balance between the north and south.
Slavery should continue!
Since some people in the north weren't happy about this, Maine stepped up to balance it up and asked to join as a state that would NOT allow slavery.
And in 1820, that became known as the Missouri Compromise.
