Storyboard Text

  • Summer In Philadelphia
  • The Virginia Plan is best for all!
  • Mosquitos are everywhere this season!
  • Only for the big states you mean!
  • The Great Compromise
  • And instead of the Virginia plan's two houses of congress, the New Jersey Plan only has one house.
  • Please Madison in this plan, each state has an equal amount of representation.
  • We want the Virginia plan!
  • And all states will have the same amount of representatives, no matter the size.
  • The New Jersey Plan
  • Gentlemen, gentlemen, please, I'm sure that we can come to a compromise, A GREAT ONE.
  • The Great Compromise
  • We will have the House of Representatives and a Senate like in the Virginia plan, the representative count will depend on population, and all states will have an equal 2 votes in the senate.
  • But what of the slaves? Shall they be included in the census?
  • A British soldier attempting to wave mosquitoes away in the hot weather, with James Madison and Roger Sherman defending their differing plans for the constitution in the background.
  • 3/5 Compromise
  • For that I propose that all slaves are counted as equal.
  • Roger Sherman explaining his New Jersey plan to the delegates with James Madison standing at the side. The text on the bottom is from some of the delegates watching.
  • 3/5 Compromise
  • I think that we can come to a compromise here as well.
  • What does that mean?
  • I believe that a compromise can come from having the slaves be people and property.
  • This means that we will split them up into...
  • The central government needs more power! It is too weak to do anything!
  • In this cell I had George Washington come to tell of a compromise that can mostly solve Madison's and Sherman's problem.
  • Federalists and Anti-Federalists
  • The Constitution will only be ratified if we include a bill of rights!
  • A delegate brings up the subject of slavery, and if they should be counted in the state census's. A delegate from the north thinks that they should be counted as people. Someone else from the south thinks that they should instead be counted as property.
  • Well I think that they should be counted as property, as they are not aloud to vote.
  • George has come in again to try and settle another dispute. He suggests that they could split the slaves up, people suggest numbers, and 3/5th's was chosen, with the person from the last cell still thinks that they should be counted as people. Another man disagrees.
  • 1/5!
  • 2/3!
  • 3/5!
  • This is not right, all men must be equal!
  • Yes! We shall split each slave into 3/5's of a person.
  • I think that it is just fine.
  • In this cell there are federalists and anti-federalists arguing about the people's rights, the bill of rights, the constitution, and the power of the government.
  • The government has powers, but the people have no rights! The constitution is insufficient for protecting rights.
  • To make sure that this constitution gets ratified we will include a bill of rights.
  • . I believe that the constitution is sufficient for protecting the rights of the people.
