    "The Kansas–Nebraska Act of 1854" created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska, opening new lands for settlement, and had the effect of repealing the Missouri Compromise of 1820 by allowing white male settlers in those territories. "The Wilmot Proviso" was designed to eliminate slavery within the land acquired as a result of the Mexican War (1846-48). Soon after the war began, President James K. Polk sought the appropriation of $2 million as part of a bill to negotiate the terms of a treaty. "The Fugitive Slave Law" or "Fugitive Slave Act" was passed by the United States Congress on September 18, 1850, as part of the Compromise of 1850 between the North and South and it was to force the North to return run-a-way slaves. _______________________________________________________________________________ The "Missouri Compromise" was an effort by Congress to defuse the sectional and political rivalries triggered by the request of Missouri late in 1819 for admission as a state in which slavery would be permitted. At the time, the United States contained twenty-two states, evenly divided between slave and free.
