the major issue was how to count a population for representation.
i am from the north
yes they do your just jealous you don't have a lot of saves.
The Southern states had large amounts of slaves. The Northern states did not really have a slave population.
slaves do not count in congress.
i still got to use half of my slaves.
Slave states, mostly in the South, would only could 3 out of 5 slaves as a person. This compromise meant that some of the slaves in the South would be counted, but not all, which was acceptable to the Northern states.
at least its not all of them now it could be fair.
