I am John Dickinson, and I wrote the first draft of The Articles of Confederation. It was then revised by a committee and presented to Congress.
Hello I am George Washington and this is the constitutional convention. We are are here to address the problems caused by the Articles of Confederation.
My name is William Paterson and I would like to propose the New Jersey Plan. This would entail all states getting equal votes in congress.
My name is Edmund Randolph and i would like to propose The Virginia Plan. This would entail a 3 branch government, checks and balances, and 2 houses. The houses would use population to divide the seats.
I propose a compromise we can have a house divided by population and a senate with 2 representatives from each state.
My name is James Willson and Roger Sherman and I would like to propose The Three-Fifths Compromise. This means that the slave vote will only count for 3/5 of a regular vote.
