Storyboard Text

  • I think that only free white men should be counted as people.
  • I agree! This way, the states north who don't own slaves could have the same representatives as southern states.
  • I think that all people should be counted. Even slaves because they're apart of our population and we would get more representatives too!
  • That sounds great! More representatives are better. We need a compromise though. What should it be?
  • This compromise should be called the 3/5 compromise which means that slaves are counted as 3/5 of a person.
  • I think that all states should have a equal amount of representatives.
  • That sounds fair! If every state has one representative, there will be no conflict.
  • Its not fair to the states with big populations! It should be proportional to the population of each state.
  • This will help the southern states because they have tons of slaves which will give them more representatives for voting.
  • What if we split Congress into two sides where the upper house will have two senators per state regardless of population It will be called the Senate.
  • And the lower house will have senators based on population. It will be called the House of Representatives.
