A DETAILED LOOK AT THE STATE’S FOUNDING YEAR
1820: THE BIRTH OF MAINE
The year 1820 holds paramount importance in Maine’s history, marking its emergence as the 23rd state in the United States. This article will delve into the circumstances, events, and the overall significance of this landmark year.
THE PATH TO STATEHOOD: THE MISSOURI COMPROMISE
The Missouri Compromise was a critical piece of legislation passed by the United States Congress that led to Maine’s statehood. As the debate over the expansion of slavery into new territories was heating up, Congress sought to maintain the delicate balance between slave and free states. In 1820, Missouri was ready for statehood as a slave state. To preserve the equilibrium, Congress devised a compromise, pairing Missouri’s admission with Maine’s, which would be a free state, thereby maintaining the congressional balance.
