Slavery in the Confederate Constitution | Abbeville Institute

1.9.1 (Bars Foreign Slave Trade) “The importation of Negroes of the African race, from any foreign country other than the slaveholding States or Territories of the United States of America, is hereby forbidden; and Congress is required to pass such laws as shall effectively prevent the same.”
Isn't that interesting!

1.9.2 (Congress can bar slaves coming from States remaining in the United States) “Congress shall also have power to prohibit the introduction of slaves from any State not a member of or Territory not belonging to this Confederacy.”
And believe it or not, there WERE slaves in the North.

Interesting read. The South was right!!! Something I bet you didn't read about in school. Damn sure not in today's schools.
