      Steve,

      There is a good discussion of the Constitutional Convention debates as they
      related to slavery in Fehrenbacher, _The Slaveholder's Republic: An Account
      of the United States Government's Relations to Slavery_ (Oxford, 2001), pp
      28ff.

      South Carolina in particular opposed any efforts to ban the international
      slave trade. An initial compromise of a ban after 1800 was agreed on then
      reneged by South Carolina, but they finally agreed to a twenty year ban,
      allowing for Congress to ban the trade, if Congress so desired, after 1808.
      (34-35).

      Interestingly, all thirteen states, including South Carolina, then
      individually banned the trade. However, South Carolina reopened it,
      effective January 1, 1804. The Congressional ban took effect December 31,
      1808, so all the legal trade in the last four years was through South
      Carolina.

      Take care,

      Bob

      Upon what do you base this assumption? While you are at it, why was the
      period 20 years?
