Spencer, Tanner, Chad, Rachel, and Ashley.

2 The Missouri Compromise
Missouri applied for statehood in 1819. This struck some tensions due to the balance of Slave states and Non-Slave states. They didn’t want to have more Slave states then Non-Slave states. These tensions ended when Maine applied for statehood as a Non-Slave state.


4 Missouri Compromise Line
Then an amendment was passed that prohibited slavery North of Missouri’s because they wanted to keep slavery out of the Louisiana Purchase. Also the land was apparently not suitable for farming. So the South benefited from this because they got to expand the area of slavery westward into the Arkansas territory. The whole thing was managed by Henry Clay.

5 The Election of 1824 This presidential campaign showed how separated the party was becoming. Four candidates ran. All of them were Republican. They were all the “favorite sons” of their region.

He was the son of the second president. Before he became president he was known as the greatest secretary. He was defeated in the reelection of 1828.

9 The Election of 1828 This election was between Adams and Jackson.
Candidates started to criticize each other’s personalities and morals. Jackson used the Corrupt Bargain to his advantage to show that Adams was untrustworthy. The results were that Jackson had 56% of the popular votes. Also he had 178 out of 261 electoral votes. The people who voted for him were from the West and South.
