Storyboard Text

  • Every slave should count as a man because they live in that state too.
  • The south thought that slaves should equal 1 man when they talked about who would be counted for representatives in Congress.
  • Slaves are not residents they should not count for the states population
  • The north thought that the slaves should not count for the population to determine the number of representatives in Congress.
  • Soon it was decided that 3/5 of a slave would be equal to 1 white man or woman this was called the 3 fifths compromise.
  • Big states knew that they would be able to have more representatives if they said they wanted proportional government because if you have more people in your state you would get more representatives. They wanted two proportional houses.
  • Big States (The Virginia plan)
  • It would definitely make sense to have proportional representation.
  • Small states knew that if it were proportional government they would not get very many representatives which would mean they would not have an equal vote. If it was equal they would have the same amount of votes. They wanted one legislative house.
  • Small States (The New Jersey Plan)
  • We need a voice two which is why it should be equal.
  • Roger Sherman came up with a plan called The Great Compromise. He said that there would be two houses one called the Senate and one called The House of Representatives. This was made so that both big and small states would be happy with congress.
