How did the Constitutional Convention delegates decide to handle the slave trade?

The delegates knew that the slavery issue could prevent the Constitution from ever being ratified, and the states would have never become a nation. Therefore, they decided to mostly ignore the issue and put off the major decisions to another day. The slave trade was to be banned after 1820, more than 30 years in the future for the delegates; but no plan was made for any eventual end to slavery. One historian noted that when the delegates put off the slavery issue for "another day," that day was the Civil War; a very bad day indeed. The consequences of failing to deal with slavery -- a huge war with nearly 700,000 dead -- are a lesson about what happens when a government decides to do nothing about a terrible issue that must be dealt with.
