  • But don't take away our slaves!
  • At the Constitutional convention, the Connecticut Compromise created a bicameral legislature in which the House is determined by states' population size and the Senate would be equal across all states.
  • In order to solve the issues of how slaves should count in regards to representation in legislature as well as for tax purposes, they decided that slaves would count as 3/5's of a person. 
  • The federal government could not ban the slave trade until 1808, but they could still tax slaves coming into the United States.
