There was only one compromise regarding slavery and it was the three-fifths compromise which stated that slaves would be counted as three-fifths of a person for purposes of assigning House of Representative seats. Another compromise during the Constitutional convention was the Great compromise which created a bicameral legislature and the creation of the electoral college for Presidential elections.

Who was the chairman of the constitutonal convention?

George Washington was voted in as the chairman of the Constitutional convention. He became unhappy with the position because of the arguments between large and small populated states or northern free states and southern slave states. He also had to stay quiet or neutral with any remarks so he would not be accused of using his position to sway the vote on any contorversy. Thank goodness for Roger Sherman of Connecticut who came up with the Great Compromise. Three major compromises allowed the constitutional convention to conclude to the ratification process. "Father of the U.S. Contitution was a young delegate from Virginia named James Madison, who later will be voted in as the fourth President of the United States.


How did the Constitutional Convention deal with slave trade?

The Constitutional Convention left the slave trade untaxed and untouched. Delegates from the southern States were naturally wary about the prospect of Congress being able to regulate America's interstate and foreign trade. They were afraid that the North would use its influence in Congress to levy taxes on the slave trade and the cotton trade. The delegates from the South pushed for, and won, a compromise on the matter: the Commerce and Slave Trade Compromise. This agreement made it so Congress could regulate interstate and foreign trade, but could not tax exports. This meant that cotton exports from the South would not be affected. In addition, Congress was forbidden from regulating the slave trade for 20 years.

How did the post - war era french revolution and the constitutional convention reveal and foreshadow the existence and growth of sectional and class differences in the US?

The existence and growth of sectional and class differences in the United States were in fact revealed and also 'foreshadowed' in various ways by events after the (American rather than French) Revolutionary War in the 1780s. The 1787 Constitutional Convention, for instance, highlighted yet again the increasing difference between Southern mindsets and Northern, with 'class' distinctions showing up as significant between convention-delegates as well as within the home-regions of those same delegates.
