I can't confirm it. Many scholars deny it.

Permit me to comment: A few moments of study, even by someone from another country, ought to reveal: There is an
amendment to the US Constitution (Article 13; for one reputable site/cite, go to and scroll down) which purports to prohibit [both] slavery [and]
involuntary servitude.

OTOH, there is draft registration and there are a few other loose ends.

Go figure.
