Yo! Do you know what the Kansas Nebraska Act is?
It opened the door for slavery to expand into western territories.
No. What is it?
It also put an end to the restrictions made by the Missouri Compromise.
Tell me more!
It also allowed settlers of a territory to decide whether slavery would be allowed within the new state boarders.
That's so cool!
The bill divided west Missouri into 2 territories, Kansas and Nebraska
The conflicts led to a period known as the Bleeding Kansas.
That sounds intense.
The Kansas Nebraska Act helped to pave the way to the American Civil War.
I never knew all these things about the Kansas Nebraska Act. Thanks!
