We know the United States Constitution is the document that creates our nation's government, but do we know why or how this came to be? but let's look a little deeper into the Ratification of The Constitution.
This isn't fair! We need more power. We need a NEW constitution.
By 1786, defects in the Articles Of Confederation were starting to show through. This made the colonists upset.
So, delegates met to fix the articles. They decided to restart it all completely. The following was some of what was included.
The Great Compromise
The Great Compromise combined both ideas of the votes based on population and equal representation. Two chambers in Congress were made: Senate and The House of Representatives. The House is votes based on population, while Senate is based on equal representation.
The 3/5 compromise
The states didn't agree on which states slaves should be counted as part of the population, so they made the 3/5 compromise. This compromise stated that every slave counted for 3/5 of a man.
There was also a disagreement relating to slave trading regulations. They compromised by agreeing to outlay slavery after 1808 and taxing slave imports in the meantime.
