if slavery was illegal in the southern states they could legally secede? interesting. i keep thinking of when the framers were writing up the constitution. it was a long debate over slavery. the south didnt want it written into the consitution as illegal but the north did. so at the time there was nothing illegal about owning slaves but then the north changed their mind and forced the south to comply?
