The Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia

This brand of optimistic realism infused the bold and uncertain strivings of the Constitutional Convention delegates. The unusually privileged and educated men who gathered in Independence Hall in the spring of 1787 sought to improve upon their fractured and imperfect union, but they had to struggle with widely different agendas and tenuous compromises in order to forge a "more perfect union."

To modern eyes, the most stunning and disturbing constitutional compromise by the delegates was over the issue of slavery. Some delegates considered slavery an evil institution and of Virginia even suggested that the trans-Atlantic slave trade be made illegal by the new national rules. Delegates from South Carolina and Georgia where slavery was expanding rapidly in the late-18th century angrily opposed this limitation. If any limitations to slavery were proposed in the national framework, then they would leave the convention and oppose its proposed new plan for a stronger central government. Their fierce opposition allowed no room for compromise and as a result the issue of slavery was treated as a narrowly political, rather than a moral, question.

Research and provide a brief overview of the Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia in May 1787.
Choose and assume the position of one of the following delegates to the convention:
James Wilson, Pennsylvania
Charles Pinckney, South Carolina
Alexander Hamilton, New York
James Madison, Virginia
Analyze the Great Compromise and the Three-Fifths Compromise from the perspective of your assumed role as a delegate. You will observe that the issue of slavery created controversy during the creation of the US Constitution. The practice of slavery, while not specifically sanctioned within the Constitution, did, for all intents and purposes, become formally institutionalized. Be sure to address the following in your analysis:
Determine the biographical information about the delegate you select, including place of birth, the colony he represented, and other background and heritage details that influenced his views.
Explain the issues your chosen delegate considered important in relation to the Great Compromise and the Three-Fifths Compromise.
Explain from your delegate’s perspective whether each of these two compromises was necessary (required) in order to secure passage of the draft constitution (to be submitted to the states for ratification).
Explain from your delegate’s perspective the importance or necessity of drafting a new Constitution and what this action would achieve nationally.
Explain from your delegate’s perspective if and why the Great Compromise was necessary and why slaves were to be counted as three-fifths a human being for purposes of representation.
