Storyboard Text

  • Virginia plan
  • I want 2 houses of legislature and representation in congress based on population
  • I want one house of legislature and equal representation in congress
  • New Jersey plan
  • There will be 2 houses of legislature in the upper house it will be equal representation and in the lower house the representation will be proportional to population
  • The big states wanted this because they have slaves which will give them a higher population and more representation in congress because of the higher population
  • We need slaves for a bigger population and we dont think that slaves should be counted for taxes.
  • The small states wanted this because they didn't have slaves so they didn't have as big as population as the big states so they wouldn't have as much representation in congress
  • We think slaves should not be counted for population and counted for taxes
  • This is known as the great comprise it happened at the constitutional convention in Philadelphia, 1787
  • We will count up all of the slaves and then take 3/5ths of that and count them for taxes.
  • The south wanted slaves to work on their plantations and not counted for population because they had a lot of them
  • The north wanted slaves to not be counted for population because they dont have very much of them and because of that they wanted slaves to count for taxes
  • This was the 3/5ths comprimise
