Storyboard Text

  • Sign the Constitution! We need to solve this problem now! The Articles of Confederation are weak and ineffective!
  • Federalist
  • I think we can just tweak the Articles of Confederation and be good to go! Besides, this Constitution of yours has too strong of a central government!
  • Anti-Federalist
  • Do you remember Shays' Rebellion? We need to quickly unite the states, create a common currency, and more so that we can keep the people happy.
  • However, we still need the states to have rights written out in a Bill of Rights BEFORE we release it!
  • I promise we WILL create a Bill of Rights, but at this moment we need to tell the states what we DO have.
  • I promise we WILL create a Bill of Rights, but at this moment we need to tell the states what we DO have.
  • Really? I will agree if we lay out all the rights for wealthy people AND farmers/skilled workers alike.
  • We should count slaves as part of our population in order to make our proportion in Congress bigger!
  • What about us small states up north? We do not have many slaves. Besides, you are already HUGE, Virginia. Why do you need more representation?
  • You want to count slaves for representation? Fine! However, you have to also count them for taxation!
  • What? No! We have so many! There is no way we could afford to pay for that many slaves! Besides, you states up north would have to pay next to nothing!
  • Fine. We will count 3/5 of the slaves for taxation and representation. It is either that, or you free them all and have no slavery, which is what we northern states want.
  • We will not sign the agreement unless we get to have slavery. We will take the 3/5 compromise.
