The Compromise of 1850: America’s Final Attempt to Pretend Slavery is OK

The Compromise of 1850: America's Final Attempt to Pretend Slavery is OK 1

Imagine that your house is on fire.  You see it, but instead of calling the fire department, you turn your back and pretend that it’s not happening.

Corps of Discovery: The Lewis and Clark Expedition Timeline and Trail Route

Lewis and Clark Expedition

A cool spring breeze whispers through the tall trees. The waves of the Mississippi River lap lazily against the bow of the boat — the one you helped to design.  There are no maps to guide you and your party, for what lies ahead. It is land unknown and should you continue deeper in, that …

The Wilmot Proviso: Definition, Date, and Purpose

The Wilmot Proviso

Throughout the 19th century, during the period known as the Antebellum Era, Congress, and American society as a whole, was tense.  Northerners and Southerners, who never really got along anyway, were engaging in a White-hot (see what we did there?) debate over the issue of slavery — specifically, whether or not it should be permitted …
