Explain why westward expansion created a clash between sectional interests in missouri

Answers

While the South utilized slavery to sustain its culture and grow cotton on plantations, the North prospered during the Industrial Revolution. Northern cities, the center of industry in the United States, became major metropolises due to an influx of immigrants. With this willing and cheap workforce, the North did not require a slave system. Although some northerners found the institution of slavery morally reprehensible, most did not believe in complete racial equality either. Slavery became even more divisive when it threatened to expand westward because non-slave holding white settlers did not want to compete with slaveholders in the new territories.
To many nineteenth century Americans, the expansion of slavery into Western territories caused a great deal of controversy. Since the drafting of the Constitution in 1787, the North and the South had grown further apart in terms of economy, ideology, and society. The North, especially, was afraid that the South would force its “peculiar institution” upon the entire Union. 1 These fears were realized when the expansion of slavery into western territories entered Congressional debates. The federal government, hoping to prevent a civil war, temporarily resolved the issue with compromises. As the compromises appeared to become more one-sided, however, sectional divides between the North and South became more pronounced.
Slavery became even more divisive when it threatened to expandwestward because non-slave holding white settlers did not want to compete with slaveholders in the new territories. Politicians were forced to deal with the issue of slavery and its westward expansion as early as the MissouriCompromise of 1820.
Sectionalism in Missouri wasn't new but as half the state wanted to go west and the other half believed it was not our right to push the natives out any further. religious groups spread the idea of fair treatment for slaves. as more slaves from the south came north at the same time of the expansion, slavery was put in the spotlight and people started to become more sectioned. this eventually lead to the Missouri compromise of the 36/30 line.
