It was voted on in the Congress and established by the majority of states. There is a relationship between the two documents in which the 13th amendment is the official mean by which the Emancipation Proclamation was executed. (ibid). Although January, 1st ,1863 , was the date in which the Emancipation Proclamation took place in
James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay wrote the federalist papers in 1787 and 1788. They made the federalist papers to convince the states to ratify the Constitution.] According to Doc. C, and Federalist paper number 51,” Constant aim is to divide and arrange the several offices is in such a manner… check on the other.” James Madison, is explaining how the government got split into three branches.
At the Constitutional Convention in 1787, differences between the delegates and the interests they represented made compromise absolutely necessary. Debates over representation led to two very well-known compromises. These compromises are the Great Compromise and the Three-Fifths Compromise. The Great Compromise led to the establishment of a two house legislature, which resolved disputes between small and large states. The Three-Fifths Compromise gave the South more representation by counting slaves as three-fifths of a person.
The Founding and the Constitution Describe the formal amendment process The Formal amendment process of the Constitution is broken down into two parts. The first part begins by proposing an amendment. Proposals are made by a representative in either the house or the senate.
The Great Compromise is a faction of the Constitutional Convention .It is also known as the Connecticut Compromise and was developed to ensure that all states would be represented equally in congress. Larger states favored the Virginia Plan which allowed states with a bigger population to have more representatives. Smaller states that preferred New Jersey Plan argued that each state should have the same amount of representatives sent to congress. These two plans were created because the states couldn’t agree on what type of legislatures to have and two prevent one house from having more power than the other .These plans failed which in resulted in the birth of The Great Compromise.
In The Federalist Papers Alexander Hamilton wrote 51 of them and there were only 85. In the presidential elections in 1800 Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were the nominees. Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton were both running to be Thomas Jefferson’s vice president. The people voted and they tied so Hamilton began promoting Jefferson and then he won the vice president spot.
From the articles of 55 to 66, they explained the structure of the outcome that came from the Connecticut Compromise, the House of Representatives and the Senate(Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, 1788 Federalist Paper). It further discussed the election methods, terms of re-election, and their duties. In this section of the articles, the Federalist Papers was mainly add on more details and restrictions onto the conclusion that draw from the Connecticut Compromise, with the legislative structure of the House of Representative and the Senate. The New Jersey Plan along with the Virginia Plan made out the Connecticut Compromise, which had perfected the US Constitution with justice and rights to
The Connecticut Compromised of 1787 in the United States, also known as the Great Compromised, originated in the creation of legislative bodies. It joined the Virginia Plan that favored population-based representation, and the New Jersey Plan, which featured each state as an equal. Roger Sherman, of Connecticut, played an important role in building this compromise. Roger Sherman was well-regarded at the convention and was respected by many of the other members. On the morning of June 11, Sherman proposed that the proportion of suffrage in the first chamber should correspond to the respective number of free inhabitants; and in the second chamber or Senate, each state should have one vote and no more.
Among his recommendations Madison proposed opening up the Constitution and inserting specific rights limiting the power of Congress. Seven of these limitations would become part of the ten ratified Bill of Rights amendments. On September 25, 1789,congress approved twelve articles of amendment to the Constitution and submitted them to the states for ratification. If Madison was not so stubborn on getting his way then I am not sure we would have The Bill of Rights, or as many rights as Madison wanted. Thanks to Madison I feel like a true American citizen because I feel like I am truly a free person and feel protected.
The United States Constitution was created to define the powers and limitations of the government. It replaced the Articles of the Confederation, and was ratified by all 13 states in 1787 (American Government, n.d.). The ratification of the Constitution was not without opposition, and the government was split into two groups: federalists, and anti-federalists. The federalist group believed that a national governing body, ruled by the elite class was necessary. Antifederalists, on the other hand, believed that state governments should have more say, and that the government should be run by ordinary people (American Government, n.d.).
1. The Constitution of 1787 attempted to resolve agreements on regulating trade, taxing, protecting private property, and several other weaknesses the Articles of Confederation did not fixate on. Another controversial topic in the Constitutional Convention was the question on representation. Two different plans were presented: the Virginia Plan and the New Jersey Plan. The Virginia Plan wanted representation to depend on the population within a state, a national government with three branches, and one house that would elect the people in a second house.
As seen in Document A, it compares the Articles and the Constitution. For the executive branch, (the Constitution) had president administrators that enforce federal laws while (the Articles) only takes care when the Congress is not there. For the legislative branch, (the Constitution) a bicameral legislature where each state has equal representation in the Senate and each state has proportional representation in the House of Representatives thus fixing the issue of representation for small and large states. The Articles had a unicameral legislature where each state has one vote no matter what population they had which was unfair for the small states. The Constitution had a national court system that hears different cases while the Articles didn’t have that at all.
The Constitutional Convention in 1787 was created to provide a strong national government to solve America’s problems and to mainly fix the Articles of Confederation. Both leaders Hamilton and Madison called for this convention to discuss trade issues and create a new government rather than revising the old government. Instead of revising the Articles, there were two discuss plans that were proposed for a new form of government. The first discuss plan was the Virginia Plan written by Edmund Randolph called for a bicameral congressional where the legislature and court chooses a chief executive. This plan made the number of representatives and the states proportional to the population of each state and called for the number of votes received
When Henry Clay created the Compromise of 1850, his intent was to reduce sectional tension between the North and South, or more specifically, the free and slave states. In awarding each side a part of their list of grievances, the Compromise was supposed to appease the divided the country and stop a conflict. Unfortunately, the Compromise was not successful in its intent. It further divided the country due to the loopholes found in the Compromise´s words. The North got the upperhand of the Compromise of 1850 due to the region's power in the Senate, their unwillingness to obey the laws, and the idea of popular sovereignty.
