Transcript of Powerpoint On Expansion of Slavery and the Compromises Reached As the Country Moved West

Slavery later was established in the thirteen colonies. Slaves picked cotton while whites got free slave labor. This was now known as the main economy.
Most of the Southern states had or adapted slavery into their state.
Slavery started to upset Northerners. They were also jealous of the South's great economy.
Once Abraham Lincoln became president, some Southern states seceded creating the Confederacy. The conflict of slavery lead the Confederacy to take fire starting the Civil War.
The Missouri Compromise is a law that was devised by Henry Clay that states that any states above the Missouri Compromise Line are legally free states.
The Oregon Compromise was a compromise that settled a disagreement between the U.S. and Great Britain. It resolved the dispute over possession of the territory extending over the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. Congress solved this problem by giving 49th parallel possession to each country.
The Compromise of 1850 was a compromise created by Kentucky Senator Henry Clay. The Compromise of 1850 had four parts to it.
The Missouri Compromise of 1820 was ratified by Henry Clay. This compromise stated that any states above the Missouri Compromise line are considered free states.
