About Us


The Compromise of 1850 Heritage Society was created by the University of Massachusetts History Club. We wanted to create a source that will explore antebellum America and explain in simple terms political actions that took the country to Civil War.

We combine basic facts and provide historical documents and a wide variety of media such as maps, landmark illustrations and portraits to enhance understanding and research in order to promote excellence in learning.

If you have questions about the material presented here or need help with your own history project, do not hesitate e-mail us at: umasshistoryclub@hotmail.com
