Teaching The Missouri Compromise

The Missouri Compromise

Congress drew a line starting at Missouri’s southern border, which was at 36°30´ north latitude, straight across the rest of the Louisiana Purchase. Congress prohibited slavery in territories above that line and permitted slavery in territories below it. This came to be known as the Missouri Compromise.
