Was slavery horrible? Yes. Was it immoral? Yes. But the one thing it was not is *unlawful*, and to put today’s American taxpayers under the onus of a crime for what was *legal behavior at the time* goes against not only an important principle clearly embedded in our Constitution but also our understanding of what living in a truly free society means.
