In 1820, Maine was added as a non-slave state (23rd), and Missouri was added as a "slave state" (slavery allowed). This plan kept the number of Northern, pro-abolition states equal to the number of Southern, anti-abolition states, 12 each. But after the Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) established a state's right to choose its status on slavery, the Missouri Compromise was no longer in force.
