    Should I put this:

    The Compromise of 1850 was a package of five bills passed in the United States in September 1850, which defused a four-year confrontation between the slave states of the South and the free states of the North regarding the status of territories acquired during the Mexican-American War (1846–1848). The compromise drafted by Whig Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky and brokered by Clay and Democrat Stephen Douglas, avoided secession or civil war and reduced sectional conflict for four years.

    This is what I have so far:

    The Compromise of 1850 was a set of five bills passed in the United States in September 1850, which soothed a four-year battle between the slave states of the South and the free states of the North regarding the position of lands taught during the Mexican-American War.

    This is what i have so far.

    Let me know if this is okay or I need to be more specific.
