What was one issue that the delegates to the Continental Congress spent much time discussing?
While writing the Declaration of Independence, the delegates debated many things, including deep-sea fishing rights and what the national bird should be. However, one of the most significant and long-lasting debates that happened in the Continental Congress was the debate over slavery. In the initial drafts of the Declaration, Jefferson included that all people living in America were free citizens, something that his pro-slavery counterparts in Congress took issue with. The entire southern contingent threatened to withhold their signatures from the document unless the anti-slavery clauses were removed. Eventually, Jefferson allowed the slavery passages to be taken out of the Declaration because he believed that American independence was more important - once America was independent from Britain, the slaves could be freed by the American government.
This freeing of the slaves did not happen until the Civil War, long after Jefferson had died. The deep-seated causes of the Civil War can be seen in the debates over slavery during the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
The main issue faced by the Second Continental Congress was whether to continue seeking reconciliation with Great Britain or to declare independence. Delegates also decided to form the Continental Army and to appoint George Washington as its commander-in-chief.

Moderates in the Congress still hoped that the colonies could be reconciled with Great Britain, but a movement towards independence steadily gained ground.

In addition, the delegates agreed to end slave with other countries in 1808.
Well there were mainly two, states rights vs. federal rights (the main issue of all of American history) and representation of slaves in congress. The issue of states rights vs. federal rights produced the Connecticut Compromise, which formed two houses in the legislative branch of government, the Senate (federal rights) and the Congress (states rights).
