Storyboard Text

  • The northern states are stating their reasoning for slaves not to be in population count.
  • We don't have a lot slaves, so why should you count your slaves as your population?!?! You should at least have to pay taxes on them. Also you will have too much political power.
  • We want to have slaves counted as our population! We don't want to pay taxes for them either, they don't have rights. We think we should have more political power
  • The southern states argue back with their statement.
  • That's a good idea, we have a deal.
  • The northern and southern states agree on the 3/5 compromise .
  • How about we count 3/5 of the slave population for representation and for taxes.
  • The Federalists and Anti-federalists meet to ratify the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
  • We need to ratify the Constitution because we are giving to much power to the states. The Articles of Confederation is too weak.Also we don't want to have a Bill of Rights because the Constitution will protect your rights.
  • The federalists think they need a strong central government and give less power to the states.
  • We want a Bill of Rights. We remember what would happen in England and we are worried that you will do the same so we want it on paper.
  • If you ratify the Constitution we will write a Bill of Rights but it might take us a few years.
  • The Anti-federalists agree to ratify the Constitution if they will get a Bill of Rights.
  • Okay as long as we get our Bill of Rights so we can have our rights on paper and it won't be like England.
