Where would it expand to? Kansas didn't have but 9 slaves in 1860 and it wasn't long till they were gone. Missouri didn't have very many. Past that what would slaves be doing past Texas?? There ain't no cotton beyond that.

I believe the reason The Confederacy wanted those lower states was to reach the Pacific for obvious reasons.
