During the Constitutional Convention, the Commerce and Slave Trade Compromise gave Congress the power to do what?

Answer:

The Commerce and Slave Trade Compromise of 1787 gave Congress the power to regulate trade within the American states whilst also impeding them from passing any legislation in relation to slavery for over 20 years. It was a compromise between the Northern and Southern States who had deeply differing views on the legality and moral issue of slavery.
