This Day in History:  1820 – The Senate passed the Missouri Compromise, which officially made Missouri and Maine states, and also prohibited slavery in all future western states north of latitude 36°30′.


Fact of the Day:   The compromise in admitting the state of Missouri in 1820 would repeat itself in whether or not to allow slavery in the states of Texas, Kansas, and Nebraska, eventually igniting the Civil War.


Quote of the Day:


Did You Know?   Black soldiers were permitted to join the Union Army in the Civil War in 1863.  Scholars believe this infusion of soldiers turned the tide of the war, ensuring a Union victory.
