Keep ducking and dodging like the good little neo confederate you are.
The US Supreme Court sure did defend the right to own slaves with the Dred Scott v. Sandford ruling.

And the US Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act that stated runaway slaves had to be returned to their masters

Of course this was before there ever was a Confederacy.

Stating facts should not be confused with ducking and dodging.
