Us Northerners demand the South has to pay taxes for their slaves as they are their property, yet to have them not count as population.
The Southerners disagree wholeheartedly, we refuse to pay taxes but insist that our slaves are apart of the population to be counted in the House of Representatives
Wait! I, Roger Sherman, think I have a solution called the three-fifths compromise! Every 5 slaves, the government will count 3 of them to tax for the North and 3 of them to be represented in the population, which in turn will allow the South to have more house of representatives.
The North is just happy that most of the South's property is taxed.
The Three Fifths Compromise We, both the North and the South agree to tax 3 out of every 5 slaves but also count them in population count for representation in House of Representatives
Us Southerners are able to have more of a say in the House of Representatives but sadly we are now taxed
