Storyboard Text

  • The Virginia Plan
  • Hi, my name is Virginia and I want a number of representatives and three branches of government.
  • The New Jersey Plan
  • Hi, my name is New Jersey and I want each state to vote and I also want three branches of government. 
  • The Great Compromise 
  • I, Roger Sherman, think we should create a two-house legislature which will be the lower house based on population and the upper house for each state to have two votes no matter the size of the state. 
  • I think the enslaved should be counted towards taxes.
  • Northern States Perspective 
  • Enslaved people could not vote, so they should not count in the population count for representative. 
  • Southern States Perspective 
  • Enslaved should not count toward taxes. 
  • Enslaved are our important to sustain our economy, we don't want to ban slaves.
  • The 3/5 Compromise 
  • Each enslaved person will be counted as 3/5th of a person for taxes and for population for the House of Representative. Every five enslaved persons would equal three free persons.
