In 1860 the Crittenden Compromise was proposed. Its purpose was to resolve the secession crisis by addressing the grievances of the slave states. It proposed constitutional amendments and resolutions to make permanent the existence of slavery in the slave states and proposed extending the Missouri Compromise line to the west.

It included a clause that it could not be repealed or amended. It was rejected by both houses of congress and did not forestall secession.
