The Debate Over Slavery

Chapter 15 Section 1

     In this section, kids will learn about how new lands would ignite conflicts over slavery again in the United States.  Sectionalism is the concept of self interest in different sections of the country being different. The Compromise of 1850would calm the storm briefly, but the momentum against slavery in the North was stoked by writings such as Uncle Tom's Cabin.
