In June, James Wilson of Pennsylvania and Charles Pinckney, the youngest cousin of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, proposed the three-fifths clause. By uniting, the nominally anticlave Pennsylvanians and the proslavery Carolinian rabiat may have hoped to undermine the anti-slavery moods of other northern delegates and, at the same time, responding to the demands of proslavery delegates such as Butler and Rutledge.15 The garrisonists believed that if they worked in the political system, they would turn their wheels and spend money and time for a cause. which was doomed to ruin. The Constitution was proslavery, the national government was controlled by slave owners, and politics was a waste of time. A brief look at the presidency highlighted his point of view. From 1788 to 1860, only two opponents of slavery, John Adams and John Quincy Adams, held the nation`s highest office for only eight years. On the other hand, slave owners held the office of fifty of those seventy-two years, and the Southern-faced Nordics, like James Buchanan and Franklin Pierce, held the rest of the time. In addition to the specific clauses of the Constitution dealing with slavery, the structure of the entire document ensured the emancipation of the new federal government. As the Constitution created a government with limited powers, Congress did not have the power to interfere in the national institutions of states. Thus, during the ratification debates, only the most anti-gay activists in the South resisted the Constitution on the grounds that it threatened slavery. Most countries in the South, even those opposed to the Constitution for other reasons, approved General Charles Cotesworth Pinckney of South Carolina, who sang in his state`s House of Representatives: Governor Morris of Pennsylvania, who has emerged as the loudest opponent of slavery concessions, argued that derNot`s northern countries had to “pour” their blood.23 North than in the South.

Small states have reiterated their fears that large states will overwhelm them in a population-only legislature. Madison argued once again that “the real difference between interests is not between large and small, but between the northern and southern states. The institution of slavery and its consequences were the line of discrimination.┬áMadison seemed particularly concerned that state equality would give the North an eternal majority in part of the legislative branch.34 On June 11, the issue of slavery resurfaced when the convention was first considered and provisionally approved the three-fifths clause. Over the next three months, the Convention will re-examine and re-examine the three-fifths clause several times before it is finally adopted. During a debate on representation, William Paterson of New Jersey said that, according to the articles of the Confederacy, Congress had been “ashamed to use the term “slaves” and had replaced a description.” This shame on the word “slave” appeared at the Convention during the debate on the African slave trade.
