Crisis and Compromise

Price: $49.95
Order Number: 816.0019
Format : DVD
Perceptive observers were wary of the state of the union after the war with Mexico. What John C. Calhoun called "forbidden fruit" was referred to as "poison" by essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson. We examine the issues provoking a national crisis, the process of dealing with the crisis, and the meaning of the compromise reached in 1850.

This episode reviews the growing conflict between the North and South and the effects of the Mexican secession from Spain, as well as:

-- The state of the nation in 1850 and the significance of the Compromise of 1850.
-- The positions taken by the political parties in the 1848 election, and the movement towards sectionalism.
