Storyboard Text

  • We are big and we're big for a reason! We have more people who need to vote!
  • All was not well at the Constitutional Convention, and the little states were arguing with the big ones about representation.
  • STOP!!!!
  • We want equal representation! We're small and we need to be represented fairly!
  • Stop whining! Let's combine both of the ideas! We'll have a part of Congress that is represented equally and part that is represented based on population!
  • George Washington quickly got things back under control and proposed a new idea: combining the two!
  • What a compromise!
  • It was a happy day, now that the Great Compromise solved what the Articles of Confederation could not.
  • And a great one, too!
  • Federalists
  • We want the Constitution, we want it now, a national bank, tariffs, trade with the British, strong national government, and NO Articles of Confederation!
  • As no surprise, there was another argument- this time with the Federalists and the Antifederalists about a "bill of rights".
  • Anti-federalists
  • Federalists
  • The views differed greatly, as they disagreed on just about everything. Luckily, someone was going to think of a (sort of) plan...
  • We want a bill of rights, trade with the French, state banks, weak central government, and to TWEAK Articles of Confederation!
  • Anti-federalists
  • Federalists
  • It was finally decided that they would have a bill of rights, but it would be written later so the Constitution could be established sooner.
  • That's enough! We will have a Bill of Rights, we just won't do it right now. Okay?
  • Anti-federalists
