Storyboard Text

  • 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!
  • Maine
  • 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.
  • Missouri
  • And in 1820, that became known as the Missouri Compromise.
