Episode Details

The persistence of slavery dashed any hopes that the Compromise of 1850 might settle sectional differences between the north and south. As the abolitionists and the slave catchers dramatized the moral issue involved, we analyze how the Fugitive Slave Act, the Kansas-Nebraska Act and the Dred Scott decision led to irrepressible conflicts.
