Delegates at the Constitutional Convention agreed to allow the international slave trade to continue for another 20 years in order to reach a compromise between Northern and Southern states. Southern states wanted to preserve the institution of slavery, while Northern states sought to limit its expansion. The compromise was seen as necessary to secure Southern support for the new Constitution.
