Oregon became the 33rd state of the U.S. on February 14, 1859.
Slavery played a major part in Oregon‘s history and even influenced its path to statehood. The territory‘s request for statehood was delayed several times, as members of Congress argued among themselves whether the territory should be admitted as a "free" or "slave" state. Eventually politicians from the South agreed to allow Oregon to enter as a "free" state, in exchange for opening slavery to the southwest United States.
