Storyboard Text

  • We must find ways to promote trade among our states!
  • No! It'll help us stay out of conflict!
  • This new government is going to take away our human rights!
  • In 1786, a series of events happened that would lead to a new government. In September, delegates from five states met up in Maryland to discuss ways to promote trade. 
  • Everyone voted for me!
  • 55 delegates met in Philadelphia to hold a meeting. James Madison read more than a hundred books in preparation for the meeting.
  • I have a wonderful plan!
  • In 1776, the people thought the new forming government was a threat to their human rights. In 1787, the people realized they needed to have a government to stay out of conflict. On May 25th, 1787, at least two delegates from each state arrived in Philadelphia for the convention.
  • Let's compromise on a plan.
  • I also have a plan.
  • Almost every delegate voted for George Washington. Everyone's discussion remained secret.
  • On May 29th, delegates began to design a new government. Edmund Randolph offered a plan for the new government, later known as The Virginia Plan.
  • William Patterson also offered a new plan for the new government later on June 15th. On June 19th, delegates voted for which plan they wanted to use; The Virginia Plan won. The two plans were later on merged together which is now know as The Great Compromise.
