Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Feelings about state additions?
  • Free the Slaves!
  • No more slave states!
  • Make a Free country!
  • Northern Free States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • Almost there! Soon there will be no slavery!
  • Northern Free States: Who was involved?
  • Think about this: 5 bills to solve our problems 
  • Henery Clay has my support in the up in coming bill to solve our problems
  • Northen free states hated to compromise because it let slavery expand to the west. They wanted to abolish slavery, so they wanted a solution that got rid of slavery altogether 
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about state additions?
  • Free states should pick, not the federal government!
  • States should vote!
  • They liked the 36°30′ line because they got more land. They like it because it helped them get closer to accomplishing their ultimate goal: abolishing slavery in all of the United Sates
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • Oh no! I might lose my precious slaves!
  • The two leading congressmen that supported the North were Stephen A. Douglas and Millard Fillmore. Fillmore was a president that supported Clay's bill to solve the problem. Douglas also supported Clay's bill and helped get passed by separating the bill into 5 different bills.  
  • Southern Slave States: Who was involved?
  • Why have one bill, when you can have three?!
  • Southerners felt like the Congress should not have a say in determining whether a new state should have slaves or not. The thought it would be best if every state could choose if they wanted to be free or have slaves. They wanted the state government to have more power than the federal government when it came to making new states have slavery.
  • Let them choose what they want 
  • Southerners were scared about the line and the compromise. This was because the line could cause the end of slavery. A lot of the southern economy was based on slave labor.  They were worried that there would be less slavery if the North had more states that have not been made yet. 
  • Henery Clay was one of the leading Southern congressmen. After Douglas had an idea to solve the problem of the division of slavery into three bills instead of one. His three bills got passed after the first bill got rejected.
