In the early nineteenth century, people were good at compromising and making things work for everyone. How long did perfect compromising actually last? Slavery began to split the nation apart, causing compromising to become hard to do. Slavery was one of the biggest problems between 1820 and 1860. Sometimes two states had to be added to the Union at the same time, to make things fair.

Starting in about 1854, the South began to accuse the North of refusing to comply with the Fugitive Slave Act, and at one point the Act was ruled unconstitutional by the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854 also contributed greatly towards the Civil War, as it triggered what later would become known as “Bleeding Kansas”. The Kansas-Nebraska Act allowed popular sovereignty

The main turning point for this was in 1854.

The Compromise of 1877 was brought to attention recently, shortly after the Presidential Election of 1876. It called to resolve the disputed 1876 presidential elections in the United States.
