    COMPROMISE OF 1850

    In the decades before the Civil War, the United States was regularly dealing with the issue of slavery and the role of the federal government vs. states' rights.

Many of the greatest American statesmen of the day - Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Stephen Douglas, John Calhoun - weighed in on the subject.
