Storyboard Text

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Continental Congress. 3/5th Compramise.
  • New York delegate, Alexander Hamilton: We must not include the slaves in the population! This would be unfair to the states with no slaves. only the whites should be counted for representation!
  • Georgia Delegate, Abraham Baldwin: No! The slaves must be counted. It is only fair that the southern states be allowed to count them in their population for more representation in congress!
  • I have an Idea! If we count all of the slaves but only take 3/5ths of the total number that would be fair to both the northern states and the southern states.
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Continental Congress. The Great Compromise.
  • Edmund Randolph of Virginia: We must have a bicameral legislature, two houses with representation, and the number of delegates would be proportional to the population.
  • William patterson of New Jersey: No! It would be better to have one house in the legislation with equal representation. this gives each state the same number of delegates.
  • Roger Sherman of Connecticut: I think that the best solution would be to compromise and have there be two houses, but one would have equal representation across the states, and the other would have proportional representation based on population.
