I stand corrected Pro Gun. I will re-check my facts and post further if the need arises!
However, thousands of slaves were brought into the country, well after this time by Yankee slavers and other countries mostly to the Spanish colonies to the south, and the flag that most ships flew was "Old Glory". No one would risk a "confrontation" with a ship flying the US flag. The South never had an offical slave ship line, nor did the Southern Cross (Confederate battle flag or Navy Jack) fly over the slave ships.
