Hello, I am Virginia. I want to have the number of representatives based on the population, a strong national government, and two house legislature.
Hi I am James Madison.
The New Jersey Plan
I am William Paterson and This is the New Jersey Plan for the states.
Hi, I'm New Jersey. I want each state to have one vote and one house legislature.
The Great Compromise
I'm the Great Compromise. I said we should have two house legislature.
The lower house is for representatives to elect by votes and are based by population which made Virginia happy. The upper house would be for the senates chosen by the state legislature and each state no matter what size would have two senators which helped New Jersey.
The Northern States
We Northern states want taxes if there is to buy slaves. The slaves trades should be banned.
The Southern States
We Southern states want to keep slaves because it helps our economy and give us more representatives.
The 3/5th's Compromise
I am the 3/5ths compromise. I give 3 out of 5 slaves to be counted for taxes and for population for the house of representatives.
