Storyboard Text

  • The slaves in the south should be taxed because they are the ones who help the southern states make money and they are property owned by the southern states
  • Northern States
  • Yeah, but they should not be counted for population because why should we count people who can't even vote!?!?! Plus, that would give the southern states more political power because they would have more population
  • These slaves should not be taxed because it is not fair to put a tax on the slaves.
  • Southern States
  • Yeah, but they should count for population because it would give us more political power in congress.
  • 3/5 of the slave population will be taxed and counted for population. Also, in 20 years, the slave trade will be abolished, but slavery itself will not be abolished
  • James Wilson and Roger Sherman come up with a comprimise for this problem
  • We need a constitution because the Articles of Confederation are going to doom this country! And if we have a Bill of Rights, then people will think that those are their only rights.
  • The federalists argue why we should have a constitution, but why we don't need a Bill of Rights
  • The Anti-Federalists argue why we do need a Bill of Rights if they were to ratify the constitution
  • For us to agree to ratify the constitution, we would need a Bill of Rights to safeguard individuals rights and make sure that the government doesn't get too powerful
  • Deal. We will get James Madison right on it.
  • In 1791, the Bill of Rights were approved after they were written by James Madison
  • Sounds like a plan. We will have a constitution with a Bill of Rights
