Confederacy Opposed International Slave Trade
Reading "Look Away" by William C. Davis, specifically about the founding of the Confederate States of America ("CSA") in 1861. Basically, the CSA adopted the US Constitution with only a few changes.
One thing that was retained was the US Constitution ban on the international slave trade after 1808. Only South Carolina wanted to re-open the importation of fresh slaves from over seas. All other states were staunchly opposed to this.
In the 1860's, the African Slave trade was still humming along, as African "kangz" (Al Sharpton pronunciation) amassed huge fortunes capturing and enslaving their fellow Africans over seas to the Western Hemisphere and Eastward to the Middle East. Blacks brought to the US before 1808 were not "stolen" or "kidnapped." They were PURCHASED...orignally from '"African kangz."
In 1861, there was no organized opposition to the African slave trade in Africa. THERE WAS ORGANIZED OPPOSITION TO ITS REINTRODUCTION IN THE CONFEDERACY. More Southern White leaders opposed the slave trade than African leaders who grew rich from it.
