Storyboard Text

  • Northern Free States: Feeling about States additions
  • We want Missouri as a slave state!!
  • Then, we are bringing Maine as a free state! That's fair!
  • Northern Free States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • Latitude 36,30
  • South: slave states
  • I'm James Tallmadge of New York
  • Northern Free States: Who was involved?
  • I'm Rufus King of Massachusetts.     
  • Northerners strongly opposed adding Missouri as a slave state to the Union since it would upset the balance of power in Congress.  If Missouri is added as a slave state, Maine would come in as a free state to preserve the balance.
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about state additions?
  • More slaves are better for southerners.
  • Proposing latitude 36 30 as the boundary between the free and slave states would assure no new states north of the boundary will be admitted as a slave state. Northerners liked it. 
  • Southern Slave States: Feelings about the 36°30′ line?
  • 36 30 will be repealed by the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
  • Free states: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusettes, and Rhode Island Congressmen who argued for the North: Rufus King who believed Congress has the power to prohibit slavery  James Tallmadge: wanted to ban slavery  
  • Southern Slave States: Who was involved?
  • William Pinkney of Maryland. I'm a supporter of slaves.
  • Southerners favored any states entering as a slave state because slaves were counted as three-fifths as population. Higher population meant the higher number of representation in Congress. It was an advantage the slave states were hoping for.
  • The Slaves counted as 3/5th  
  • Southerners accepted the 36 30 line in order to make Missouri a slave state. They never like any restriction to make any states entering the Union as free states. This part of the Missouri Compromise was later repealed by  Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854
  • We have the right to choose slavery
  • We do not like the government interfering. 
  • Slave states Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina A congressman who argued for the South:  Senator William Pinkney who believed in every state right to choose slavery.
