The Great Compromise
My name is Roger Sherman and I call for the creation of a two-house legislature, one called House of Representatives and the other called Senate.
The northern states didn't let enslaved people count for the count for representation because they couldn't vote, and they were also considered property.
The southern states included enslaved people in their count for population because it would give give the southern states more representatives in the House of Representatives, and they also said that enslaved people are important to sustain their economy.
The 3/5 Compromise
Each enslaved person will be counted as 3/5th of a person for taxes and population for the House of Representatives.
