  • The Great Compromise
  • Lets have two houses based on population in one of the branches in our three branch government.
  • No let's just have one house in that branch, and lets make each state have an equal say.
  • Summers In Philadelphia back in the early states were usually very hot and humid. The settlers also let out the animals during the night and day. So they usually left a bad smell wherever they went. Many people got sick because this.
  • The Great Compromise.
  • Lets have one branch based on population, and one of equal power.
  • Inside Independence Hall, the Important people in relation to the Constitution are meeting and reviewing it with James Madison. This meeting is a secret because they need to be able to speak freely.
  • The 3/5th Compremise
  • Slaves should count as part of our population!
  • As the Articles of Confederation were not working well, the new United States needed a new government. They agreed a three branch government would be best, but they couldn't agree on how the states should be represented: By population or equal representation
  • The 3/5th compremise
  • What if each slave counted for 3/5th of a person when looking at population.
  • Then, a man by the name of Roger Sherman came up with the idea of two branches; one based on population, the other with equal say for all the states.
  • And that brought up the problem of what to do with the slave population . The southern states thought it would be a good thing to keep it in the population count, but the norther states were against it.
  • No they shouldn't!
  • Then, a man by the name of James Wilson Came up with a compromise, that each slave would count as 3/5th of a person.
