    The Mexican war and Westward expansion brought about the southern secession because it added new territories to the country that people the country needed to determine if they were going to be slave or free. They led to many of the new compromises and then abandoning of those compromises. People on both sides did not want to see new states added on either side of the debate, it would have upset the balance in the senate.
