Storyboard Text

  • Good Morning, we are gathered here today to discuss the weak Articles of Confederation. Each state only have 1 vote!
  • My name is is William Patterson of New Jersey and I am proposing the New Jersey Plan. 
  • With the New Jersey Plan, there will be a unicameral legislature and all states would have equal representation.
  • Well Mr.Patterson, I'm Edmund Randolph of Virginia and I am proposing the Virginia Plan
  • The Virginia Plan states a Bicameral Legislature and the Representation will be based on the state's population
  • I don't agree with that plan Mr.Randolph
  • I Roger Sherman of Connecticut came to propose the Great Compromise or the Connecticut Compromise  
  • With this compromise, there will be a Bicameral Legislature. One house would have representation based population while the other house would have equal representation.
  • Well this sounds like a great plan that would compromise both of the plan
  • We only use slaves to grow crops we don't want to pay extra taxes for them!
  • I propose the 3/5 Compromise which counts slaves as 3/5 of a person to achieve compromise between the northern and southern states
  • It's not the best idea but it's okay!
  • South Carolina relied on exportation so we don't want national government to control trade
  • It promised that the federal government A)would never tax exports or B) attempt to regulate the international slave trade for at least 20 years
  • The Commerce Compromise will fix that problem!
  • Backcountry: We don't want anything to be ratified unless our rights are guarenteed under writing
  • Because of the Backcountry farmers, the Bill of Rights (First 10 Amendments) were written to protect the rights of the people in writing. 
  • Eventhough not all states got everything they wanted in the new constitutions, The United States Constitution was ratified.
  • Ratification
