  • The Delegates Assemble No one knew what to expect at the Convention, but they all agreed on one thing: a government should protect people's rights.
  • State's should each have one rep.
  • Let's compromise.
  • The Convention Begins George Washington  was elected president of the Convention. It was decided that everything would remain secret, so the doors were guarded and the windows were closed.
  • The Virginia Plan The Virginia Plan had 3 branches of government. In the legislative branch, reps were based on a state's population and wealth.
  • The Great Compromise The New Jersey Plan suggested that each state have 1 representative so that the smaller states would have the same amount of representation as the bigger states.  They decided that there would be 2 houses in the legislative branch. The senate would have 1 rep from each state. The House of Representatives would have representatives based on population of state and wealth.
