In the early 19th century, Americans sought to resolve their political disputes through compromise, yet by 1860 this no longer seemed possible. Analyze the reasons for this change.

Im having problems finding information to support this.

This is my introduction:
In the history of the United States of America, there has been a discernable division between the North and the South; though, compromise had usually sufficed in calming the controversy. However, nearing 1860, political compromise appeared impracticable. Many political compromises were endeavored between 1820 and 1860, but compromises simply postponed addressing the issue, and eventually developed into a greater issue: the Civil War. The Missouri Compromise in 1820, succession attempts, the Compromise of 1850, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act are all examples of how political compromise gradually became unfeasible nearing 1860.

    you should break your introductory paragraph down into three main topics you will speak about. those three topics will sreate your body paragraphs. its agood idea to explain how compromise wasn't working socially, politically and economically for the nation that way you can list all your outside knowledge under each of those categories. its a pretty good start though since youve at least takne a stance as to what you will be talking about.
