Henry Clay was considered the "Great Compromiser" due to his three major compromise proposals.
1. Missouri Compromise/Compromise of 1820: Established slavery status rules for the Louisiana Territory. No slavery was allowed above the 36'30 parallel except for Missouri.
2. Compromise Tariff: Gradually lowered protective tariff rates to end the Nullification Crisis.
3. Compromise of 1850: Set slavery status for states/territory acquired from the Treaty of Guadeloupe-Hidalgo following the Mexican-American War. Banned the slave trade in DC and established a harsher fugitive slave law.
