The Slavery Compromise

Storyboard Text

  • North
  • Slaves shouldn't count in population, they should be taxed as property
  • South
  • North
  • We disagree. The slaves should count as population, for more representative votes. They should not qualify as a property tax.
  • South
  • Some states allowed slavery and viewed slaves as property90% of slaves were in the Southern statesOther states were starting to outlaw slavery
  • The North did not want slaves to count for population because it would mean the southern states had more representatives. They wanted slaves ton count as a property tax.
  • The South wanted slaves to count as population so they could have more representatives. They didn't want them to be a property tax (would've cost most people a lot of money).
  • 
  • Five slaves counted as 3 people
  • The 3/5ths Compromise/Slavery Compromise was created.
