Summary
The authors (both law, Rutgers U.), begin by examining the Somerset case of 1772, which freed a slave brought to England. This decision convinced slaveholders in the southern American colonies that England intended to end slavery, resulting in the Virginia Resolution, which led to the first Continental Congress of 1774. Northern politicians, seeking support in the south, accepted the "immortal ambiguity" of slavery that came with them; when politicians came to a temporary compromise of sorts over slavery in the Northwest Ordinance, they invented tensions that could only be resolved in a civil war. The authors are convinced that slavery, far from being a temporary problem eventually resolve by war, include a commentary about how we should take actions toward correcting the inequities set in place by political compromise from the American Revolution onwards.
