Storyboard Text

  • We know the United States Constitution is the document that creates our nation's government, but do we know why or how this came to be? but let's look a little deeper into the Ratification of The Constitution.
  • This isn't fair! We need more power. We need a NEW constitution.
  • By 1786, defects in the Articles Of Confederation were starting to show through. This made the colonists upset.
  • So, delegates met to fix the articles. They decided to restart it all completely. The following was some of what was included.
  • The Great Compromise
  • The Great Compromise combined both ideas of the votes based on population and equal representation. Two chambers in Congress were made: Senate and The House of Representatives. The House is votes based on population, while Senate is based on equal representation.
  • The 3/5 compromise
  • The states didn't agree on which states slaves should be counted as part of the population, so they made the 3/5 compromise. This compromise stated that every slave counted for 3/5 of a man.
  • Commerce
  • There was also a disagreement relating to slave trading regulations. They compromised by agreeing to outlay slavery after 1808 and taxing slave imports in the meantime.
