We are FREE from British rule now WE MAKE THE RULES! COME ON MEN!
The government is ruining this new world! The Articles of Confederation are severely unjust!
Hey guys we NEED to make a new constitution! The Articles of Confederation is wrong.
After the Revolutionary war the Colonists made the Articles of Confederation to have rules for new world. The downside is that the AOC was not well thought out and gave the states too much power and the government was poor.
The Virginia Plan
We need a strong central government. Like judicial, executive and legislative branches.
Shey realized that the Articles of Confederation was not well made and did more harm than good to them and feature generations. He and around four thousand other rebels decided to rebel against the government.
After Shey´s rebellion went on for six months most realized there needed to be a change. On May 26th, 1787 55 delegates got together to write the Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederation.
Constitution is Ratified
Me and my team fixed the government and now I´m the president!
The Virginia Plan was the idea of having a strong central government. Those being what are now called the three branches of government; legislative, executive, and judicial branches.
There was the Great Compromise that stated, depending on the size of the state that´s how many votes they would get. A white man´s vote counted as one whole vote and a black man´s vote counted as 3/5th of a vote.
Don´t worry guys the ¨coloreds¨ will count as 3/5th of a vote.
A year later the Constitution was ratified. Since George Washington was already president of the Constitutional Convention it was unanimous that he was the first president of the United States.
