Slavery was legal in TN and TN adopted the slave code of the North. By 1790, nearly 3500 slaves made up 10% of the population. Slavery therefore basically started in the 1790's

Slavery in the US had been practiced for roughly a century before the Revolutionary War.ANSWER:The first evidence of slavery in the American Colonies, comes from sales records of the 1640's. The slaves were in the Chesapeake colonies.The first legal recognition of slavery was a Virginia statute in 1662, which said that the status of a newborn child depended on the status of the mother. If she was free, the child was free; if she was a slave, the child was a slave. This made slavery inheritable.

The Thirteenth Amendment, which was passed in 1865. The Emancipation Proclamation which went into effect on January 1, 1863, only outlawed slavery in states that were engaged in rebellion against the Union government. Thus before the adoption of this amendment, slavery continued to be legal in slave states that did not succeed, such as Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri, and the western part of Virginia which had broken away from Virginia and formed the new state of West Virginia.

Four - Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware. The new state of West Virginia, formed in 1863, was also a slave-state, though there was very little slavery in the mountains. Finally, there was DC, although not technically a state, where slavery was still legal in the first months of the war.
