oct 7, 1820 - Missouri Compromise

Description:

Desc: It was an effort by Congress to alleviate the sectional and political rivalries caused by the request of Missouri being admitted as a slave state.

Causes: Before the admission of Missouri as a state the U.S. was balanced between slave and non slave states giving both sides an equal representation with the admission of Missouri as a slave state it would tip the delicate balance that was sought to be preserved.

Historical Impact: Established the 36 30 line indicating that new stats admitted above the line would be free while those under the line would be slave states.
