Transcript of Missouri Compromise
Finding Our Way Out Of This Historical Mess
Our Plan: Peace Compromise
-Prevent competition between the north and south such as: --Which region had more power?
-Who had control over more states presented in the future?
-Whether these states would be pro or anti-slavery
-Popular Sovereignty wouldn't exist
-The competition for land wouldn't have gotten so out of hand and become unpreventable
The differences between the north's economy (manufacturing) and the south's (agriculture) wouldn't exist because the economy would merge in to co-depend on the other for typical balance
-The emphasis of their economic differences wouldn't exist
Political and Economic Implications
Pros and Cons of Prevention Plan
Ban slavery in all of the new territories
Base representation of state equally, not in relations to population
Hence, prevent the Kansas Nebraska Act from angering one side of the country.
All slaves born after this year are automatically citizens or those that have been in the U.S for more than 5 years
36 30' split the country in two, as in forming two separate countries with opposing opinions
Debate over slavery became a political conflict
Popular Sovereignty became a competitive issue between the North and the South
Lead to massive populations fighting over new states entering the country
With two opposing sides within the same region, either a split or a war was meant to happen
The Missouri Compromise
Why it Caused the Civil War
A New History
Born January 17, 1706
was a scientist, writer, politician, and an abolitionist
one of The Founding Fathers of the U.S
invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, the glass armonica, and the almanac
was the U.S minister to France and Sweden
president of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society
Benjamin Franklin is an inspiration to our group because he proved electricity and invented tools we still use today and was also an abolitionist who believed slavery should be outlawed. He was one of the most important Founding Fathers because he was the only one who signed all four of the major documents of the founding of the United States: the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris, the Treaty of Alliance with France, and the United States Constitution.
Died April 17, 1790
Civil War= Never happened
Americans wouldn't view themselves as separate bodies of people but as America as one unit.=No "official division" at the 36' 30 line
36'30 line is gone
Slavery still would be an issue at first until a further plan is enacted
Bleeding Kansas would never have occurred.
No Obama :(
Civil War never happened
Henry Clay would've gained popularity and had the votes of African Americans in the 1824 election
John Q. Adams wouldn't become president
Proposed by Henry Clay in 1820
dispute over the extension of slavery in Missouri Territory.
Maine goes in as a free state and Missouri as a slave state which maintains the balance in the Senate, which had included 11 free and 11 slave states),
forbade slavery north of 36° 30' (the northern boundary of Arkansas and the latitude line)
First time U.S had a sectional split
Persuade Henry Clay to change the Compromise to:
-The 36'30 line wouldn't exist, hence no competition between labels like "north" and "south"
-Popular sovereignty=not a problem
-Bleeding Kansas wouldn't have occurred because people wouldn't have felt the need to illegally give a state more pro-slavery state votes
-Instead of competition, the two economies will learn to merge together and be dependent upon the other
