Storyboard Text

  • Yes, it's a great compromise!
  • But what to do about the slaves?
  • I like it.
  • They should be counted for representation! They're people too!
  • But you don't treat them as such! YOU just want more power! Taxation only!
  • Wait! I have an idea! What if the slaves count as 3/5ths of a person toward representation and taxation?
  • Fine.
  • That way, neither the North nor the South will have too much power.
  • That's a good idea. Now, let's never discuss this again!
  • The delegates agree with Sherman's plan, and continue onto the next problem: Whether or not slaves should be included in representation and taxation.
  • That could be hard...the people will probably be very tentative to approve a new government.
  • Excellent! Now that we have written the Constitution, we will need a 9/13 state majority vote to ratify it!
  • The Southern States wanted them to count as representation, for it would give them more power, but the Northern states only wanted them to count for taxation.
  • That doesn't mean people can't be persuaded to join our cause! Let's start a party—the Federalist Party!
  • We can write papers and essays to try to get all of the... Anti-Federalists, those opposed to the Constitution, to ratify it!
  • Finally, James Madison suggests a plan— slaves will count as 3/5ths of a person toward taxation and representation. The delegates agree with the compromise and move on.
  • Fantastic! We are on our way to creating a government that will last through the ages!
  • After the Constitution is written and signed, it must get 9/13 states to approve it. The delegates know that not everyone will agree with their new government, but they must try to persuade the states to ratify it.
  • They form a party called the Federalists, which consists of those in favor of the Constitution and who wanted to give more power to the central government. In response to the new political party, those against the Constitution and who wanted the state governments to have more power, become the Anti-Federalists.
  • Finally the delegates have finished debating about their plans for a new government, and now must begin the fight for ratification.
