In this article, the writer provides an analysis of the views of John Calhoun and Daniel Webster concerning the Compromise of 1850 and the issue of slavery. The writer looks at the debate in Congress over the issue of the slave question.
From the Paper:"The Compromise of 1850 was the result a heated and at times vicious debate in Congress between the advocates of slavery and the abolitionists. Two of the main figures of this debate were John Calhoun who summarized the South's grievances and Daniel Webster who advocated moderation. The crux of the debate was the institution of slavery which threatened to tear the nascent Union asunder. The South was reliant on slavery for its economic growth while many in the North found the practice immoral and worked to subvert it."
