Was getting rid of Maine a good deal or a bad deal for Massachusetts?

    Well, they didn't exactly "get rid of" it.

    The whole thing was part of the Missouri Compromise.

    Considering the longstanding trade relationships between the two states, I don't think it worked out too badly for Massachusetts.

    A bad deal, at least they still have a semblance of political common sense
