1. What changes did the Kansas-Nebraska Act make in the agreements reached in the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850? The Missouri Compromise of 1820 allowed Missouri to be admitted to the Union as a slave state, but it prohibited the spread of slavery into the northern Louisiana Territory. The Compromise of 1850 allowed the territories of Utah and New Mexico to exercise popular sovereignty in determining whether or not to allow slavery. The Kansas-Nebraska Act effectively repealed the prohibition of slavery in the remainder of the Louisiana Territory, allowing popular sovereignty in this territory as well. This opened up the northern territories to the possibility of slavery. 2. How had the knowledge of land west of the Mississippi River changed since the early 1800s and what impact did this have on settlement patterns? In the light of these changes, how would the population be expected to expand in the next few decades and what impact would this have on the balance between slave and free states in the Senate?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
