        Compromise of 1850 (1850) and Resource Materials

        This resource is a facsimile of Henry Clay's handwritten draft of the Compromise of 1850. The Compromise consisted of a series of bills designed to alleviate growing sectional divisions in the country. Specifically, the bills provided for slavery to be decided by popular sovereignty in the admission of new states, prohibited the slave trade in the District of Columbia, and established a stricter fugitive slave act.

        This resource can be found on the Our Documents website.
