"The Compromise of 1850"

City Garden Montessori School
Saint Louis City, MO

A compromise was made,
Separating the free
And the slaves.

Abolitionists, the soldiers
Of anti–slavery
Fighting in a horrible battle
For freedom,
Searching, looking and
Finding ways to save
The innocent slaves.

Would the disastrous battle
End in death?
All that came after this
Was a vicious killing spree
Wreaking havoc.
This was a war,
A civil war,
The world wouldn’t
