Storyboard Text

  • The Framers
  • Voting
  • Washington, you will be our President!
  • Voting
  • We are here to discuss the Articles of Confederation and alterations to them.
  • Twelve states were invited to the Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Of the 74 invited, 55 showed up.
  • Virginia Plan
  • Each state delegate would have one vote on every matter and the major would win. Such as the vote of George Washington becoming the convention president.
  • New Jersey Plan
  • Each state delegate would have one vote on every matter and the major would win. Such as the vote of George Washington becoming the convention president.
  • Great Compromise
  • Then we will have two houses, the Senate will be equal and the House based on population.
  • They wanted a bicameral congress where representations would be based on a state's population or money given to the government. They wanted a National Government.
  • The representation of states will be based on population and money supported to the government. The house representatives will be elected while the senate will be nominated. The houses can override a veto by the congress.
  • The smaller states did not agree with the New Jersey plan and instead, wanted a unicameral congress where everyone was represented equally. They wanted to limit the powers of the Congress.
  • This would no be fair for the smaller or poor states. Representation should be equal. Furthermore, people will be chosen by the congress and a request can be removed through majority vote of the States' governors.
  • The dispute was resolved when they agreed that the smaller senate will have equal representatives for all, while the house of representatives would be based on population.
