Storyboard Text

  • Three-Fifths Compromise
  • Being from the North, we feel all slaves should not be counted for. It would be unfair for all small states who are not slave owners to be dominated even more than they already are!
  • Later that day...
  • On behalf of my people, the Southerners, I must disagree. Slaves are people too! It would be irrational to not count them and let their presence be wasted!
  • I have a solution! Taking both sides into consideration, I have decided the best way to confront the situation is to count 3/5 of each state's population of slaves for representation in congress.
  • *patriotic music fills the horizon*
  • Agreed, good sir!
  • Ratification Debate
  • Here we are again, on our way to discuss the future of our people. The federalists vs. anti-federalists. This should be quite the show!
  • I must disagree! This document will give too much power to the federal government and create the problem we have worked so hard to escape from. If anything it should have a bill of rights to focus more on the common people's needs.
  • Us federalists believe our constitution will beautifully encompass all rules needed for a fair government. A bill of rights is unnecessary, as it would limit the rights we have worked so hard for! The constitution will be just right without the publication of a bill of rights, balanced and fair.
  • The Constitution
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • Eventually, both sides compromised and wrote the governing document we know and love today. The federalists agreed to add a bill of rights which gained the approval of anti-federalists. We never believed it would still be in use today!
