Anti slavery democrats helped form the republican party?

After the Compromise of 1850 temporarily neutralized the issue of slavery and undercut the party's no-compromise position, most Barnburners who had joined the Free Soil Party returned to the Democrats. In 1854, some Barnburners helped to form the Republican Party.

Had to be democrats, if it were reps we'd have been smart enough to leave your worthless hides in Africa.

So the anti-slavery democrats stopped being democrats and became the 1st republicans.
