  • How about we make a Compromise!
  • And so they came up with the Great Compromise that supported a Bicameral legislature but then another problem appeared
  • WE DON'T WANT TO PAY EXTRA TAXES FOR OUR SLAVES
  • Then they came up with the 3/5th's Compromise which caused slaveholders to largely dominate the gov.
  • NORTHERN STATES : YES
  • SHOULD WE REGULATE TRADE ?
  • Issued the Commerce Compromise which made it that congress could regulate trade, no export tax, and no limit on slave trade for 20 years
