Transcript of Compromise of 1850

Compromise of 1850 Seth Redford What is the Compromise of 1850? The Compromise of 1850 is a collection of five
bills. Texas claimed that its borders were to Santa Fe.
Texas did not get the claimed land but did receive ten million dollars. At the time Washington DC was the largest slave trading city in the nation. The bill stopped the trade but still allowed slavery. The
Fugitive Slave
Act This act was made to pacify pro-slave owners. The Fugitive Slave Act said people must help recover escaped slaves. Slave owners were able to "make an insurance claim" on "lost or escaped property."
In other words, they got money whenever a slave escaped. More federal officers were required to enforce the Act. The act caused an estimated
20,000 blacks to escape to Canada and brought the underground railroad to its peak. In the end the Compromise of 1850 made things worse by increasing tension between the North and south, and lead to the civil war. Makes California a free state. Makes four other states (Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada). The Fugitive Slave Act. http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?flash=true&doc=27
