-David Wilmot of Pennsylvania proposed that congress ban all slavery in the west but this never became a law
-many slavery supports in the south thought of this of an attack on the south
An Antislavery Party
-both the Whigs and the Democrats didn't support slavery
-Each hoped to gain support in both the north and south
-the democratic candidate Senator Lewis Cass proposed letting people in each new territory or state decide for themselves whether to allow slaves
-some of the Whigs and Democrats wanted to make a stronger stand against slavery so they came together forming the Free-Soil Party

-Each hoped to gain support in both the north and south
-the democratic candidate Senator Lewis Cass proposed letting people in each new territory or state decide for themselves whether to allow slaves

A Bitter Debate
-After the discovery of gold in California thousands of people went there and there was enough to make it a state
-that would upset the balance of free and slave states
-the north argued that there was more land on the south and that California should be free
-the south threatened to secede it that happened
-then senator Clay came up with another compromise that he hoped would end the argument
-Calhoun was against the compromise and he was gravely ill and near death and wrote one last speech
-he said that California should not be a free state because that would break up the union
-Webster agreed with Clay

-also the southerners got a tough new fugitive slave law
-the fugitive salve act of 1850 allowed special government officials to arrest anyone accused of being a run a-way slave
Outrage in the North

-the northerners were outraged that anyone could be accused of being a slave
-many people were taking for their free lives to being in slavery and many free African Americans fled to Canada
Kanas-Nebraska act
-as the nation drew closer to war congress put out the Kanas-Nebraska act out in 1854
-it was proposed by Stephen Douglas who was eager to expand more
-in 1854 Douglas wanted to have two territories and the southerners didn't like that because they were closed by the slave line
-So Douglas said that popular sovereignty would decide if there would be slaves or not and this went against the Missouri Compromise

Anyone that was excused of being a slave could be jailed by the government
The court decides
-Chef justice Robert Taney said that Scott was not a free man and that he didn't have the right to sue and that although they lived in a free state doesn't make him free
-Thus the Missouri compromise was unconstitutional

-the southerners were very happy that now they could have slaves in the west
-one man that spoke out against slavery was Abraham Lincoln he said that they should be people

Dred Scott was an enslaved person who lived with an army doctor in both the Illinois & Wisconsin Territory, where slavery was illegal. Dred Scott sued for his freedom because he lived in an anti-slavery area. Roger B. Taney, chief justice at the time, wrote that Scott was not a free man for 2 reasons: since African Americans weren't citizens, they had no right to sue & enslaved people are not free if they live in a free state because they are property. Plus, Taney said Congress had no power to prohibit slavery in any territory thus the Missouri Compromise was unconstitutional

John Brown Revolt
John Brown hatched a plan to raise an army to free enslaved people in the South.
1859-Brown & others attacked the town of Harpers Ferry, VA to seize guns from the US army stored there and give them to the slaves to start a revolt. Brown was captured by Robert E. Lee's force.

After he was hung, the North mourned and remembered him as a hero while the South thought the North was out to destroy their way of life.
