Storyboard Text

  • The Great Comprimise
  • "We must figure this out so that both the large and small states are satisfied."
  • Three-Fifths Compromise
  • "My slaves should be counted as people!"
  • North--> <-- South
  • "No they shouldn't!"
  • Anti-Federalists VS Federalists
  • The Great Compromise was the solution put in place for the issue of weather voting would be set proportional to the population as favored by larger states, or have an equal number of votes for each state regardless of size and population. The conclusion that was set was that the larger states were satisfied with representation by population in the House of Representatives, and the smaller states were satisfied with equal representation in the Senate, where each state got two votes.
  • Bill of Rights
  • WANTED: Bill of Rights Have you seen the missing Bill of Rights? if so, Contact the Anti-Federalist committee!
  • The Three-Fifths Compromise was set into place to appease both the north and the south in their argument on weather or not slaves should be counted as part of the population since they are vote less. The southern slave states believed that the slaves should be counted as citizens, while the northern states believed that they should not. The compromise was that each slave would cound as three-fifths of a person.
  • Ratification
  • The Constitution
  • When the Constitution was released, many American citizen were shocked to see how different it was from the Articles of Confederation. The federalists and the Anti-federalists reacted in different ways. The Anti-federalists opposed a stronger federal government and were for the most part made up of the poorer, lower class of society. While the Federalists favored a stronger federal government and were made up primarily of the upper class citizens.
  • Many anti-federalists were very alarmed by the absence of a Bill of Rights along with the Constitution. The Federalists assured them however, "...that the first congress would add such a safagaurd by amendment.." (Textbook 183).
  • Since the Constitution required ratification by all thirteen states due to the Articles of Confederation which were set in place at the time, the Constitutional Congress knew it would take time and persuasion to get all thirteen states to vote it into place. When the last four states ratified the Constitution, it was not because they wanted to, but because they needed to. In order to safely exist, they needed to be in the unification of the rest of the states.
