Storyboard Text

  • Three-fifths Compromise
  • My arm and most of my leg was removed, so that I could conform to the population representation rules in Congress.
  • Anti-Federalists vs Federalists
  • Constitution is a trap! Down with the Constitution! Down with the Constitution! Down with the Constitution!
  • Hey! Stop protesting! The Constitution was drafted by some of the finest men in the world!
  • Bill of Rights
  • How could you trust the Constitution?? It was drawn up by those who can't represent us, but most importantly, there is no Bill of Rights!
  • Character: An American Slave Setting: A Picture Frame. Plot: The slave is saying how the 3/5 compromise made it seem like he isn't a person, he's only 3/5 person. Solution: The 3/5 Compromise was a solution. A question that arose from the convention was 'how would the slave population be counted?' The answer was that slaves would be counted as 3/5 of a person. Conclusion: The House of Representatives needed to know how much representation the slave states would get, so by counting them as 3/5 of a person, it provides the House with how much representation the certain state would get. Personal Reaction: How is it possible to have a fraction of a person? The slaves weren't being represented anyways, so what was the point of degrading them to seem less than human?

  • Characters: Two American Women (One Federalist, One Anti-Federalist) Setting: Outdoors. Plot: The women are arguing about whether or not to sign the Constitution. The one on the left is the Anti-Federalist while the one on the right is a Federalist. Solution: Over time, the Constitution would be signed, but for now it was an argument in America. Along the coast there were more Federalists, but along the frontier there were more Anti-Federalists. Conclusion: The people had there own opinion to the Constitution. The Federalists believed that the support of the leaders of the country was support they could trust. On the other hand, Anti-Federalists thought that the Constitution was a trap, being set up by the aristocratic. Personal Reaction: I think that the Anti-Federalists were just scared of what would come next, they might've thought that since the Articles of Confederation were weak then the Constitution would also be weak. I also think they were scared that the higher class citizens would be favored because the convention might have been biased.

  • Character: Anti-Federalist American Woman Setting: Outdoors. Plot: She's talking about how there isn't a Bill of Rights in the Constitution, and how it's dangerous to the American people. Solution: In the future, the Bill of Rights would be created, but now there's just a sense of uncertainty in the states. Conclusion: The Anti-Federalists believed that they wouldn't be represented well without a Bill of Rights, which is a reason why they thought the Constitution was a trap. Personal Reaction: I could see how not owning the Bill of Rights could be a red flag. They'd just endured a weak constitution, they don't want another mistake that would represent them poorly.
