There are 29 delegates leaders in total, include: Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, William Paterson, John Dickinson,... They are all white males, most are lawyers and very wealthy. Many help wrote the state constitutions, 21 of them had fought in the American Revolution, and 7 of them had become state governors, 8 of them had signed the Declaration of Independence
My name is William Paterson. This is my New Jersey Plan. First, each state will only have 1 vote, no matter how large or small. Second, I preserved an executive committee than a singular president. Finally, states remained sovereign except some power granted to the national government
The President will work for 7 years, and couldn't be elected for the second time, also the President will have the power to command armed forces, appointed all of judicial and executive.
I'm Madison. This is my Virginia Plan. I want to create 3 branches of government: Executive, Judicial, and Legislature. And the Legislature are Bicameral contain 2 house are the Senate and House of Representative. We will have a strong president. And the Congress will have power to veto any state law
My name is John Dickinson from Delaware. My Compromise to the small states: There will be 2 Senate per state, regarding the size, they will represent each state. The House of Representatives would represent population granting more power to larger states.
3/5 Compromise: the Southern states more seats in the Congress and more power in presidential election than they would have enjoy had only free people been counted- as the northern delegates preferred
Constitution offered slaves security: 1st: Forbade the Congress from blocking the importation of slaves for 20 years. 2nd: 3/5 Compromise: Counted each slave as 3/5 of a person to be added to a state's free population in allocating representatives to the House of Representatives and electoral college votes. 3rd: Committed all states to return fugitive slaves to their owner/ Running away to a free state didn't free a slave
By the Compromising between Virginia Plan and New Jersey Plan, the delegates supported a political system known as federalism, which divided government power between national government and state governments
