Storyboard Text

  • Something needs to be done about the Articles of Confederation. The States have way too much power. Congress can't even collect taxes because Congress doesn't have enough power. The States won't give them any money to pay the military.
  • George Washington
  • Edmund Randolph
  • I say we should make a " Virginia Plan". This'll give each state a say based off of their population. This would be a bicameral legislature.
  • I say we should follow what I call the "New Jersey Plan". This makes it more fair for the small states. Everyone will get equal representation. It would also be a unicameral legislation.
  • Roger Sherman
  • I say we follow the "Hamilton Plan". I like the idea of bicameralism. We should have a "House of Representatives" of representatives picked by the people. We should also have a Senate that's chosen by electors.
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • Roger Sherman
  • Lets have a compromise. The legislature will be bicameral. The "Senate" will be equal representation, and the "House of Representation" will be based off of population.
  • Northern States
  • Lets make a Constitution!
  • We won't approve of it unless we keep slavery.
  • Southern States
