Storyboard Text

  • Lets keep moving west to California
  • I, Zachary Taylor, believe that when we become a state can settle the problem. I will ask Congress to admit California as a free state.
  • We want to be a free state in California
  • This issue is too complicated. Admitting California would upset the balance of free and slave states.
  • Moderate southern leaders and I are considering secession from the Union because we don't want new states to be free
  • I, Henry Clay, will propose to the Senate in a single legislation about the admission of California as a free state, the formation of new territorial governments, and the abolition of the slave trade
  • Due to the Compromise of 1850, popular sovereignty will be used in the west to make a decision about slavery
  • Haha, us northerners are just going to form more mobs 
  • Because of the strengthened fugitive slave, Law you Northerners can not help our slaves and they must be returned
