Compromises at the Convention

Compromises on slavery

Southern states wanted to count all slaves for representation purposes but none for taxation.

Northern states objected.

Three-Fifths Compromise: all whites plus three-fifths of the slave population would be counted for both representation and taxation.

Native Americans were not counted.

In order to maintain unity between North and South, delegates agreed to a clause allowing the slave trade to continue for 20 years.

Another clause, the fugitive slave clause, stated that a slave who fled to another state had to be returned to his or her original state.
