about

Excerpt from Sprague's Journal of Maine History, Vol. 8: June, 1920

Thus far we have considered the movement for separation from Massachusetts and admission to the Union as a separate state as it started, progressed and effected its end in, Massachusetts and 'maine.

Now we will follow the history of the admission of Maine as made at the National Capitol.

In 1819 it was evident that the free states of the Union had 'done all possible for the extirpation of slavery and everything had 'been done by the Federal Government which the constitution al lowed, and it was evident, also, that a constitutional amendment would be necessary before anything further could be done in this direction and owing to the fact that a large majority of the states would have to vote in favor of an amendment, it was impossible 'to effect such an amendment.
