Northwest Ordinance

Why America wouldn't be the same

For The Northwest Ordinance!!!

We are for the Northwest Ordinance because it forbids slavery, this is good because it doesn't effect the South or North. The Northwest Ordinance didn't allow slaves so south wouldn't lose any.

Freedom Of Relgion😊😊😊

The Northwest Ordinance gave us Freedom of Religion, this is good because there is a diverse of different religions in America. This allowed many people to move Northwest without worrying about their religion.

More Land!!!

The Northwest allowed a lot of land for the new settlers, this is amazing because who doesn't like land? Exactly, no one hates it.
