Which act allowed states to vote separately on the inclusion of slavery?
Did free states have slavery?
At different points of time it was, well, different. When congress made the missiouri line, states on top(free states) had slavery against the law, and the ones at the bottom had slavery allowed Many years later the supreme court ruled that slavery was allowed everywhere so in the so called "free states" there was slavery. -ells
