This chapter deals with slavery, and for you as a student, the most interest thing about this chapter would probably be that the argument over slavery was being fought so early in the country's history. The Founders were well aware that slavery was wrong and needed to end even then, but the "silence"was called for until 1808. Fear of a civil war pushed the issue off the table. Unfortunately, the war came anyway.
