1850 · Compromise of 1850

Age 23

The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states. The compromise itself was received gratefully, but both sides disapproved of certain components contained in the laws. Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.
