  • (1) hello fellow americans, today we will share with you, the history of America
  • (1) On May 14th to September 17th, 1787, the New Jersey Plan, a plan that called for a unicameral legislature in which every state received one vote, and the Virginia Plan, a plan that called for a bicameral legislature in which the number of representatives in each house would depend on the population of the state, were discussed in the Constitutional Convention.
  • (3) The Constitutional Convention was the gathering that drafted the Constitution of the United States in 1787; all states were invited to send delegates. The convention, meeting in Philadelphia, designed a government with separate legislative, executive, and judicial branches. They discussed the outline of the government and how voting should work. Smaller states favored the New Jersey Plan and larger states favored the Virginia Plan.
  • (2) What was the Constitutional Convention?
  • (1) The debate was resolved through the Great Compromise. The Great Compromise was an agreement that both large and small states reached during the Constitutional Convention of 1787 that in part defined the legislative structure and representation that each state would have under the United States.
  • (2) In terms of voting, people argued that slaves should be counted as a vote towards the state while others thought they should just remain as property. The Three-Fifths Compromise outlined the process for states to count slaves as part of the population in order to determine representation and taxation for the federal government.
  • (1) In order to make the united states government fair they established the separation of powers. separation of powers ensured that each branch of government had separate functions and are in separate bodies.

The legislative branch has two parties that decide on making the laws for the country, The house of representatives and senate.The executive branch makes sure that everyone that lives in the United States are following the laws.

  • (2) That's cool
  • (1) After the constitution was written, two groups, the federalist and anti-federalists, debated whether or not the constitution should stay the same or if the Bill of Rights should be added
  • (2) The Bill of Rights were guaranteed rights such as freedom of speech, assembly and worship. After the debate, they were added as the first ten amendments to the Constitution, ratified in 1791.
  • (4) The ratification of the new constitution was on December 15th, 1791.
  • The Anti-Federalists wanted a weaker central government because they didn’t want to go through what they went through with Great Britain (they didn’t want another monarchy) and wanted the Bill of Rights to be added.
