Thomas Jefferson: God, Liberty

Many question how America could become a free country will all men being created equal when slavery was still allowed in the southern states.

The founding fathers knew this was wrong , but at the time could do nothing about it. They knew that at some future point it would be a huge problem for the country. The southern states would never approve a constitution that banned slavery and many could not afford to set their slaves free as there was a huge tax to be paid, not even George Washington could afford to pay the tax.

As a result, they treated their slaves as humanly as possible and could only hope the problem would be resolved peacefully in the future.
