Storyboard Text

  • (Virgina Delegate) I believe states should be represented in Congress by population; therefore America can be supported by the larger states. We will need a 2 house legislature.
  • PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS
  • (New Jersey Delegate) No, we need a legislature with only one house. States should be represented equally so every state has a fair chance to share their opinion. We can be supported by smaller states, too!
  • THE GREAT COMPROMISE
  • (Roger Sherman) No need to argue! We shall combine the two! We will have a two house legislature. One, the Senate, will have equal representation. The other, The HR, will have proportional representation.
  • (Northern State Delegate) Slaves should not be counted in representation. I am a large state with few slaves and if slaves are counted I will be overrun by the Southern States!
  • THE THREE FIFTHS COMPROMISE
  • (Southern State Delegate) That's silly! The slaves of this country should be counted as population so Southern states like myself can have more votes.
  • (The Solution) We will take the total population of slaves in the states and take only three-fifths of it.
