Homework Help: Slavery

Posted by Milford on Thursday, February 1, 2007 at 9:17pm.

Did Lincoln have the constitutional power to abolish slavery (before the 13th amendment)?

Is this an opinion question?

No. The power to enlave was reserved to the States. Slaves were not citizens of the US, so had no constitutional rights.
