    • Paola colon and Jailine Mendoza
    • Henry clay played a big role in the Missouricompromise. He came up with the idea.The compromise included the state ofMissouri and Maine.
    • Missouri was the newest state to enter the union.Currently there are 11 slave states and 11 free states.Missouri wanted to become a slave state but this woulddisrupt the balance between free and slave states. Thenorth tried to pass laws limiting the spread of slavery,of course the south voted down any proposed laws. SoHenry clay proposed admitting Missouri as a slave stateand Maine as a free state. He also proposed drawing aline across the map. Anything above 36* 30’ wouldautomatically be free and anything below would beslave states.
    • The Missouri Compromise was passed in 1820between the pro-slavery and anti-slaveryfactions in the United States Congress,involving primarily the regulation of slaveryin the western territories.
    • The Missouri compromise happened because
    • This compromise caused the North and South to be dividedbecause the north was opposed to slavery while the southwas not so it divided the nation into two. This lead to thecivil war because the north and south argued weather thenew states would allow slavery or not. When they drew theline the north got more land while the south only got asmall section.
