How the Constitutional Convention solved Americans problems!

Storyboard Text

  • Federalist
  • We need to get this Constitution done as quickly as possible! We don't know if the colonists will think we're limiting their rights if we add a Bill of Rights, anyway.
  • Southern (Lives in slave state)
  • No! We need to include a Bill of Rights! If we don't, the colonists won't know what kind of rights they have, and that we're protecting them!
  • Anti-Federalist
  • And so a compromise was created!
  • We created the Constitution, but then we added a Bill of Rights later!
  • All I'm saying is, why shouldn't we count slavery for representation? We would earn lots of representatives in Congress.
  • Northern (Lives in free state)
  • Why should we? The Northern states don't have enough slaves to count for it. It would be unfair. Slaves should be counted for taxes instead!
  • How DARE you??
  • So we created the 3/5's compromise! Each slave was counted as 3/5's of a person, and so the South didn't get too many extra representatives than the North, and they were also taxed similarly.
  • Who are you?
