  • Slavery
  • You can't take our slaves!
  • We will!
  • Representation
  • By population!
  • We need equality in Government
  • Commerce
  • You can only buy my chair with New York money and don't forget taxes.
  • "Slavery" does not come up in the Constitution but was a main factor at the convention having issues with representation and whether the South should abolish the practice
  • 3/5 Compromise
  • The states fought over representation in Congress. The large states wanted the representation to be based on population, while the small states wanted it to be equal for all states regardless of population
  • Great Compromise
  • In the Articles states would compete against each other by making their own currencies and imposing levies and taxes on interstate commerce. This encouraged the South to import goods from Britain instead the North.
  • Commerce Compromise
  • You can only buy my chair with US money and don't forget taxes.
  • North agreeing to include three out of every five slaves in the South population count which effected how many representatives each state had in the house of representatives. In return the South would stop importing slaves from Africa by 1808
  • The Great Compromise made two different houses in government. The House of Representatives which was based on population, and the Senate which is equal representation regardless of population size. 
  • Senate: 2 for each state
  • Bicameral Legislature
  • House of Representatives: Based on Population
  • The compromise mandated that only foreign imports would have tariffs on them while exports from the US would be tariff free. This encouraged interstate commerce, and made any future commerce legislation be passed by 2/3 majority in the Senate.
