The Kansas-Nebraska Act didn't create tension, it just made the tension even stronger than it already was since the Founding Fathers first signed the Declaration of Independence and did not address the issue of slavery. The Kansas-Nebraska Act basically drew a line on the map leaving every state above the lign a Free State, and every state below the ling A Slave State.
