Virginia's Plan involved 2 houses, 3 branches of government, and the numbers of representative depending on the population.
And I am James Madison. We are the people who propose a plan for the new government.
__New Jersey Plan__
Hello. My name is William Paterson, I am the one who presented a plan on what New Jersey wanted. New Jersey wanted one house of representatives, one vote per state regardless of the population, and 3 branches of government.
The Great Compromise
One house called House of Representatives will be based on population and would be elected by popular votes.
This is going to be great!!
The second house would be called the Senate. This house would have two senators from each state regardless of the population.
The name is Roger Sherman, I am the one who called for the creation for a Two-House Legislature.
Northern States Perspective
Enslaved people don't have the right to vote and they also aren't condsiderred as citizens.
The enslaved people should be counted as towards taxes.They can't even vote so they shouldn't be counted as a population for representation. We should ban the slave trade because it was stated that all men has their rights!!
To sustain our economy we need the enslaved people, they should not include enslaves towards taxes but they should include slaves in the population count so that southern states have more representatives in the House of Representatives.
Enslaved people should not also have their right to vote or be considered as citizens.
Southern States Perspective
The 3/5 Compromise
We came to a conclusion that for taxes and population for the House of Representatives, each enslaved person will be counted as 3/5th of a person. (60%) Woman would not be counted.
