Slavery was bad but some people didn’t think so, but people think that it was horrible, like John brown he killed slave owners in there sleep
California/the compromise of 1850.

California is a free state(no selling slaves) Utah and new México are open to slavery.
Organ territories are closed to slavery
Kansas was called bleeding Kansas, because Kansas had people that believe in slavery and other people who are against which started a lot of fights and a lot of people died.
They moved there to vote for slavery.
John brown was a man that moved to Kansas with his family to vote against slavery, he and his sons went to slave owners house and drag several out of there homes and shot them on there lawn.
John was on the run and the people who hide slaves for the underground railroad hide him and his sons.
Dredd Scott was a slave who's owner died and had no family that that Dredd could go to. The court had to decide weather to set him free or keep him a slave. The court passed a law saying slaves are property and you cannot take away other peoples property. Which was a tragedy for the north because it was pretty much saying is almost impossible to end slavery.
