  • Consti tution
  • Northern Free States: Fear about the Compromise
  • Slavery would be harder to abolish!
  • We can't disrupt he balance in Congress!
  • Opposed compromise because it would add another slave state and spread to the southwest.

  • Believed that the constitution was the law of the land and whatever the federal government said should be done.
  • Southern Slave States: Beliefs about States' Rights?
  • States should have the final verdict!
  • Const itution
  • It would add another slave state to the union and it would let slavery spread to the west.  It would be harder to abolish and would disrupt the balance in Congress.
  • Southern Slave States: Fears about the Compromise
  • Northerners got more land!
  • They got Missouri out of it and they thought that they would get California, New Mexico, and Texas sooner or later, meaning more slave states.
  • We're going to get Texas and California Eventually!
  • They thought that states should decide whether they want slavery or not.  It is not up to the federal government. Calhoun believed that the states had the right to decide.
  • Federal government  shouldn't decide!
  • The Northerners ended up gaining more land from the compromise, making the southerners mad.  They will get a majority and outnumbered the amount of slave states, hence, abolishing slavery. Also, they won't be able to farm cotton cheaply anymore.
  • This can mean the end of slavery!
  • We'll lose votes in Congress!
