Kansas-Nebraska Act by: Trey K and Kaushik N
It was a bill that mandated popular sovereignty, which allowed settlers of a territory to decide whether slavery would be allowed within a new state's borders. It was created by Stephen Douglas.
The act established that settlers could vote to decide whether or not to allow slavery, in the name of popular sovereignty or rule of the people. Douglas hoped it would ease relations between the North and the South, because the South could expand slavery to new territories but the North still had the right to abolish slavery in their states. It also led to the creation and expansion of the Republican part, who opposed the act.
This act allowed the people who lived in Kansas and Nebraska to vote whether or not they wanted to allow slavery there. Furthermore, it put an end to the Missouri Compromise that said slavery in US territories wasnot permitted north of the southern Missouri state border.
