  • Welcome Delegates to the Constitutional Convention!
  • I present to you... The Virginia Plan!
  • I present to you... The New Jersey Plan!
  • Delegates from 12 out of the 13 states came together in the heat of Philadelphia to discuss the Articles of Confederation. It was called the Constitution Convention. It was led by George Washington. The room was stuffy and had mosquitoes and a bad odor.
  • I present to you... The Great Compromise!
  • Delegate James Madison, from Virginia, introduces the Virginia Plan. The Virginia Plan was a plan with 2 branches. The number of delegates was based on population. More populated states wanted this plan.
  • Delegate William Paterson, from New Jersey, introduces the New Jersey Plan. The New Jersey Plan was a was the same for every state. Less populated states wanted this plan.
  • We are Federalists! We want the Constitution!
  • We are Anti-Federalists! We don't want the Constitution!
  • Delegate Roger Sherman, from Connecticut, introduces the Great Compromise. The Great Compromise was a plan with 2 branches. One branch was based on population. The other was the same for every state. It made it even for all states.
  • After the delegates decided to use the Great Compromise, the topic of slaves came up. The South wanted them counted as citizens, but the North wanted them counted as property and taxed. The 3/5 Compromise was created by James Wilson and Roger Sherman. It meant 3 out of every 5 slaves would count.
  • There were two types of delegates at the Convention; Federalists and Anti-Federalists. The Federalists wanted the Constitution and the Anti-Federalists didn't. They were worried about the rights of the people. The compromise was to ratify the Constitution and create the Bill of Rights to protect the rights of the people.
