Compromise of 1850

The Compromise of 1850 was actually a package of five bills that addressed the slavery question and territorial claims arising after the United States victory in the Mexican War of 1846-1848. The Compromise of 1850 forestalled the coming of the Civil War, providing a temporary solution to the question of the extension of slavery into the newly acquired territories. The principal architect of the Compromise of 1850 was Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky.
