 Public School Book Barnes 1885 Slavery and Quarrels with England:

 For nearly 200 years slave trade had been steadily growing. When Jefferson became president in 1801 slavery existed in nearly all the states. Ships were yearly bringing in vast numbers of slaves from Africa. (Remember Tripoli when Africans captured American ships and took Americans for slaves? History conveniently leaves that part out.) Under the Constitution nothing could be done to restrict the slave trade until 1808 but after that time congress was free to consider the matter.

President Thomas Jefferson was strongly opposed to slavery. He considered it a great wrong and believed that it was bad for the country. In 1807 he addressed a message to congress saying that the time was at hand when the slave trading could be legally stopped and urged congress to make a law against bringing any more slaves to this country. Congress debated the request for a time but at last passed the law which Jefferson suggested forbidding the introduction of slaves into the United States after January 1,1808. but the quarrels with England continued as they claimed the right to intercept American ships at sea and take from them any native born Englishmen who might be on board as sailors, even though they had become American citizens.

 In one case a British ship fired on one of our ships at sea and searched her by force. This would have led to war at once, had not the English government made an apology. England still persisted in searching American vessels and the dispute led to war a few years later.
