Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Conflict Compromise 1850 Uncle Tom's Cabin was an anti slavery book by American author Harriet Stowe. This novel, which was a best seller at the time, had a huge impact on the way that northerners viewed slavery. It helped further the cause of abolition. The Compromise of 1850 was a package of 5 separate bills passed by the U.S Congress in Sept. 1850, which defused a four year political confrontationbetween slave and free states regarding the status of territories acquired during the Mexican- American war.It showed a spirit of Compromise because it quieted the controversy between Southerners and Northerners overthe expansion of slavery and delayed civil war for another decade. Events Leading to the Civil War The Kansas- Nebraska Act created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska opening new lands for settlements, and had the effect of repealing theMissouri Compromise of 1820. The purpose of this actwas to open up thousands of farms and make a railroad. The result was that pro and anti slavery elements flooded into Kansas with the goal of voting slavery up or down which led to Bleeding Kansas. Bleeding Kansas was a series of violent confrontations in the U.S involving anti slavery freestates and pro slavery "Border Ruffian" between 1854 and 1861. It was a proxy was between anti slavery and pro slavery focus from the south over the issue of slavery in the U.S. Its violence indicated the compromise was unlikely. 1850: The Compromise of 1850 1852: Uncle Tom's Cabin 1854: Kansas Nebraska Act 1854: Bleeding Kansas 1860: Election of 1860 The Election of 1860 was the 19th quadrennial presidential election.
