Storyboard Text

  • We large states, including Virginia, New York, and Massachusetts think that there should be 2 houses, both with proportional representation to the population so the states paying the most taxes (and the most stakes) make the decisions and the voice of all the population is heard. We call this the Virgina plan
  • NO WAY!
  • So guys, we need to decide what type of representation we will have.
  • George Washington
  • Small States
  • We think representation should be equal in one house! Us smaller states including New Jersey, Rhode Island,and Delaware think the big states will use there many votes to control the congress and pass laws that only help themselves. We call this the New Jersey plan.
  • NO WAY!
  • Big States
  • The 3/5 Compromise
  • The Great Compromise
  • How about 2 houses fellas. 1 with equal representation, and 1 with proportional representation.
  • Northern States
  • How will we count population? Will we count slaves?
  • We southern states, like South Carolina and Georgia think, because we have so many slaves, they should count as part of our population (so we ca have more power), but not count for our taxation (so we can have more money).
  • NO WAY!
  • Southern States
  • Northern States
  • Us northern states, like New York and Vermont think slavery is bad and should be outlawed. If southern slaves are counted , the southern states will keep having power , thus keeping slavery legal! Slaves shouldn't be counted as part of the population but should be counted for taxes.
  • Southern States
  • But, what if we just counted 3/5ths of the slaves?
  • WE AGREE!
  • Let's sign this thing!
  • Grrrr!
  • But what about a Bill of Rights?
