  • The Great Compromise!
  • 55 delegates met together on May 25, 1787 in Pennsylvania in the state house to originally revise the Articles of Confederation but made a completely new thing. They first elected George Washington as president and then came up with a rule of complete secrecy.
  • I will rule the people for four years! Yay!
  • The idea of three branches, the legislative, executive, and judicial branch in government came up and then two plans were proposed; the Virginia Plan, stating legislative should have two houses based on population and the New Jersey Plan, stating only one legislative house not based on size
  • The Great Compromise incorporated both state plans, stating that the House of Representatives based on population and the Senate was a fixed number of two. Another compromise made was that congress could not tax exports and could not interfere with the slave trade.
  • Another argument arose between the delegates; how many people should lead the people, three versus one.  Eventually, a conclusion of one came around and it was also decided a president would serve for four years and be elected by a system called the electoral college system.
  • A conclusion between the delegates was made that nine out of the 13 states had to pass or approve the constitution. On September 17, 1787, the delegates declared the constitution complete.
