'They passed laws aganst slavery in the territories,
 
blocked the admission of new states which wanted to be slave-states;
 
and they refused to do anything about states that wouldn't allow slaves to pass through them,  
 
or  gave sanctuary to slaves that escaped into them.'
 
 
Which territories had laws against slavery?
 
Which territories wished to join as slave states and were instead forced to be free states?
 
What states prevented slaves from entering?
 

Who is this magical 'they' of whom you speak?
