Storyboard Text

  • I'm a representative of the big states. I want representation equal to population!
  • At the Constitutional Convention, the big states and small states were debating on how everyone would be represented.
  • We are slave states. We have slaves. We want the slaves to count as people and the slave trade should continue.
  • Hey there. I'm a representative of the small states. I want equal representation all around!
  • The smaller states wanted every state to be represented with the same number of votes. The bigger states wanted more votes so they said votes proportional to population.
  • Works for me.
  • The compromise was a senate had 2 votes for every state but the House of Representatives was proportional to population.
  • A debate the states had was whether or not slaves would count as people for representation and if the slave trade was to continue.
  • We are free states. We have no slaves. We don't want the slaves to count and the slave trade should not continue!
  • Whatever. Works for me.
  • The Compromise was the slave trade would continue for 20 more years afterwards and the slaves would count as 3/5 of a person
