Pros and Cons
CON- If you did not have fifty acres of land, you could not vote.
CON- Slavery was not allowed in the new states, causing some issues because the main cash crop at the moment was tobacco and they didn't have anyone to work for them.
CON-The new settlers anger the Native American tribes when they moved into the new land.
PRO- It can limit the number of states so there wouldn't be an overflow of states for a country.
PRO- This would let a lot of people be freed from being forced to work.
PRO- Gave settlers free reign to colonize the five states outside of the original 13 states, which are now Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
- You also need to have fifty acres of land to have a vote.
