Storyboard Text

  • Federalists
  • We have to begin the constitution NOW! No questions asked. We need the government to be fixed immediately, if we wait any longer, everything is going to fall apart.
  • Before we even can consider creating a new government with a constitution, we have to create a bill of rights for the people. It's the logical explanation.
  • Anti-Federalists
  • I got it! Lets begin the constitution and then we can create the Bill of Rights that you please. This can be the compromise we have been looking for. Now we can go forth with the plans of starting a new government and once that is created we can ensure the individual rights by creating the Bill of Rights.
  • The Great Compromise
  • North
  • Listen here, up in the north, we disagree with having all other persons to be counted as part of the state's population. It is not fair to raise your numbers up by including the other people in the population count, they don't get to vote, so why count them.
  • My apologies, but down in the south we have a better idea. We should be to count the slaves as the population. So what they can't vote, the more numbers we can get in the population, the better vote it is.
  • South
  • North
  • On the other hand all other persons, should not be counted for the purpose of determining taxation. If we don't count all other persons in the population, it would make sense for us to then be able to count them for taxation.
  • Actually, as a southern perspective, we believe that all other persons should not be counted for the purpose of determining taxation. Like I stated before, if we include them in the population, we shouldn't have to include them with taxation.
  • South
  • Okay, let's make a deal. Looking between both of our needs, I have found a solution. Lets count 3/5 of the slaves as the population, so you can have slaves be counted, but we get to have the numbers lower. Next we can also count 3/5 of the slaves in purpose of taxation, so both us can have a little of what we want.
  • The Three-Fiths Compormise.
  • Let's try it, and if it doesn't work, a lot of people are not going to be happy.
