Missouri Compromise of 1820

November 19, 2011

Just to recap, the Missouri Compromise of 1820 allowed Missouri (technically north of the line) to keep slaves but banned the introduction of slaves in anything new state created above the line. Slavery would be allowed in states established below the line. The catch was, the compromise line only applied to the Louisiana Purchase. This will become a problem very soon as Americans attempt to fufill their Manifest Destiny.
