  • In the summer of 1787 in Philadelphia, it was very hot, gross because of human/ animal poop, and there were mosquitos and flies that carried disease.
  • 3/5 Compromise 1
  • Slaves should be counted as a state's population!
  • Stop Arguing!
  • No they shouldn't! Slaves are property! That means they can't vote!
  • Delegates from New Jersey and Virginia were arguing about representation. Virginia wanted the representation based on their population. New Jersey on the other hand wanted everyone to equal, each state only had ONE vote.
  • 3/5 Compromise 2
  • After a lot of arguing The Great Compromise was proposed. Congress would have two houses, one called the House Of Representatives , one for senates.
  • Federalists/Anti-Federalists
  • The northern and southern states fought over if slaves should or shouldn't count towards a state's population.
  • As a solution for the issue the 3/5ths compromise was made. It would count slaves as 3/5ths of a state's population.
  • The federalists wanted to make a ratification to the constitution that would make a strong central government. The anti-federalists worried about the rights of the people. The anti-federalists didn't like how the constitution listed powers of the government but not the rights of people.
  • We don't like the constitution!
  • Fine I guess we'll just create a bill of rights!
