The north and the south kept arguing because the South said they should count the slaves to increase their representation In Congress. The North and the south are going to try to negotiate.
NO! You guys know we dont have many saves this is unfair they are going to have more representation then us !
Lets try to work this out.
They agreed that .Slave states, mostly in the South, would only count 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.
