Storyboard Text

  • We are having too many problems with the state's attitude toward each other. We need to call a convention.
  • All 55 are here correct?
  • Yes, but first we need to vote for a leader of the Convention.
  • Since two for each state have arrived it can begin.
  • The states were taxing each other terribly like separate countries. Many denied the invitation to reform the government till news of Shay's Rebellion spread and thenmany accepted except Rhode Island.
  • We have chosen a leader,  his serious and quiet tone will help us through this process.
  • These 55 made up of well made country ma are now known as the founding fathers. There was only white men but the framework called for equal rights.
  • While Madison and I were waiting for the convention to open we created our plan for the new government. 
  • By May 25th the convention could officially begin. Need to vote a president of convention, so everyone voted for George Washington.
  • I hate this plan! We should have only one vote per state instead of population! That is why I created the New Jersey Plan.
  • Every conversation was guarded with windows closed and guards at the door.
  • This plan was eventually called the virginia plan created by James Madison and Edmund Randolph. Legislature had the power to levy taxes, regulate trade, and make laws in which states could not.
  • They eventually said the virginia plan was the framework of the constitution, but the arguements eventually lead to The Great Compromise.
