Storyboard Text

  • Today we will make history in this building
  • The Convention Meets
  • I'm sorry that we must meet in secret, but the public can't handle it.
  • The Downside of Philadelphia
  • The summer here is unbearable
  • I'm not sure which is worse, the heat or the bugs.
  • The Great Compromise
  • Gentlemen, we need to decide between the Virginia plan and the New Jersey Plan.
  • I propose a compromise.
  • The delegates gather to amend the Articles of Confederation, but they must meet in secret as to not have the public opinion. These men include James Madison, who is considered the father of the constitution, and George Washington, the president of the convention.
  • The 3/5th Compromise
  • I do not think so because slaves are not people.
  • Not only was Philadelphia hot and insect-ridden, people never bathed, making everyone smell awful. Except Ben Franklin, who took baths regularly.
  • Federalists and Anti- Federalists
  • I believe we should have a strong, central, government
  • While the delegates agreed on many things, one thing they did not agree on was who should have the power. Roger Sherman came up with a compromise, which gave the people and the state power.
  • Overview of the Constitutional Convention
  • We disagree
  • The 3/5th compromise was one that was greatly fought for, because while the southern states wanted slaves to be counted as people for representation, the north did not. They settled on the compromise that slaves would count as 3/5th of a person.
  • I think that slaves should be counted in votes.
  • While deciding the fate of the new government, two strong viewpoints were shown, the Federalists and the Anti- Federalists. The key difference between these two is that while the Federalists wanted the power to be in a central government, the Anti-Federalists wanted a strong state government.
  • I believe that we should have a strong state government
  • While the Constitutional Convention was filled with bugs and heat and many conflicting opinions, it was also the birthplace of our constitution, and even though now our thoughts and political stances have severely changed from the founding fathers, some of the basic principles they put in place still hold up.
  • I agree
  • I am partial
