The acts from the Compromise of 1850 led to California to become a free state. This also formed a government for Utah and Mexico. They also eventually established a boundary between the United States and Texas. This also caused questions about abolishing slavery in Washington, DC. Finally, the Compromise of 1850 abolished the Fugitive Slave Act, which required slaves to be returned to their owners even if they were in a free state. This led to more questions and anger throughout the state.
