D. the southern land gained from Mexico would end up as slave states.
Option B is the right answer.
On the issue of Mexican group's attack on Americans (in North of the Rio Grande United States), the Senate of the U.S voted to go to war with Mexico. But the Northern lawmakers were worried that a war with Mexico could result in the United States gaining new areas in the Southwest, which would promote the expansion of Slavery as Mexicans claimed the land as their own territory.
Although the Northern lawmakers questioned the necessity for war, at the same time they recognized the fact that how England's opposition to the War led to the destruction of the Federalist party. John C. Calhoun( the then Senator of the South Carolina Democratic) opposed the war on the viewpoint that the reopening of the divisive issue of servitude would encourage more anti-slavery disturbances.
However, the War took place, providing the United States with a vast new territory and the question of slavery soon developed into an angry prong between North and South. Therefore, the Northern Law Makers could not prevent America to go on to war.
some abolitionist lawmakers in north were afraid of the fact that slavery was main cause of the war (contrary to common belief that was it's main reason not the independence of texas, contrary the causes of civil war were far more complex) there was hesitation for going to war with mexico in both north and south (most prominent oppositionist was adams)
the answer is b your welcome : )
