The Great Compromise an agreement that both large and small states reached during the Constitutional Convention of 1787 that in part defined the legislative structure and representation that each state would have under the United States
I am James Madison from Virginia and I am a plan for our government, I call it "The Virginia Plan"
Oh hi! It is a pleasure to meet you. I am William Paterson from New Jersey and I am also here to propose a plan for our government, I call it "The New Jersey Plan".
It is a pleasure. I would like to explain that my plan is 100% better than yours, it has a bicameral house, and the representation in those houses is based on population. I am being supported by the elite there is no way my plain in not going to be accepted.
As we all know that the Articles of Confederation are a weak form of government, it brings political tension, South Carolinians are facing this same problem, between the elite and the subsistence farmers. We need something new...
Which is so much batter than the spoken Virginia Plan.
What about the smaller states! It also consists in 3 branches of government, but has one house with each state having one vote.
James Madison explain the Virginia Plan again
But if we are going to do that, I think that we should create a bill that would protect people's rights.
I think both plans are great. We should combine them in a "Great Compromise ".
That is a great idea.
Yeah, It sounds great.
We together , are proposing the Great Compromise .We are planing two house of legislature , equal representation in the senate ...
Yay ! yeah!That's good
... And our representation is in the lower house of congress to be proportional to our population.
