Storyboard Text

  • Summer in Philidelphia
  • The Convention Begins
  • The streets are full of hazards! We must do something about it!
  • Also, this convention must remain a secret to prevent panic!
  • The First Argument
  • A state's votes should be determined by its total population!
  • That is unfair to the smaller states like New Jersey! All states deserve 2 votes and no more!
  • Trash and fecal matter line the mosquito-filled streets.
  • A Compromise is Reached
  • We will have two legislative houses. In one of them, states will get two votes each. In the other, votes will be determined by population.
  • The first speaker is George Washington, trying to address the main problems.
  • The Second Debate
  • Slaves are lower then we are. They do not count as part of our population!
  • The first argument is how many votes are deserved per state.
  • James Madison
  • A man named Roger Sherman decides on a way to resolve this conflict.
  • Now, it is debated whether or not slaves count as people in determining population.
  • All men are created equal. Slaves are part of the population.
  • How about slaves count as 3/5 of a person?
  • A man named James Madison kneels at the front, copying down notes
