Storyboard Text

  • The states have all of the power we need to make a change to the government
  • Since we are going to have a new government I would like to propose the virginia plan.
  • It was clear that the Articles of Confederation were not working so a group of delegates came together to try and fix it including people like George Washington, James Madison, and Ben Franklin.
  • That plan is unfair for the small states we should go with the New Jersey plan.
  • Philadelphia, 1780s Philly was the town chosen for the constitutional convention and it had very harsh conditions such as extremely hot weather, trash in the road, and unfortunate restroom situations.
  • Don't worry I have the perfect compromise.
  • And so it began, the search for a new government. The Virginia plan had two houses and each state would get a specific number of votes based on the population. this could not work because it only benefitted the large states such as Virginia.
  • north
  • vs.
  • south
  • The New Jersey plan had only one house and each state would only get one vote each. This plan would not work either because it only benefited the smaller states.
  • Roger Sherman was the one that came up with the great compromise. In that plan there would be two houses, one would have votes based on the population of the state and the other would have two votes per each state.
  • Now there was a new problem, would slaves be counted as people or property. The north thought they should be property but the south thought they should be counted as people.
