All right, and the question:

00:21

Which of the following acts was passed

00:23

due to the inclusion of this clause [man narrating a question]

00:26

in the Constitution?

00:27

And here are your potential answers.

00:29

[ mumbles ]

00:32

[ mumbling continues ]

00:35

Okay.

00:36

Well, as groundbreaking as they were, the Founding Fathers

00:39

did everything in their power to side-step [image of a group of people having a discussion]

00:41

the issue of slavery while writing the Constitution.

00:44

Still, a decision needed to be made on how to count slaves

00:47

as population for representation in the House, [image of a map in the background]

00:50

resulting in the ill-fated Three Fifths Compromise.

00:54

Hmm.

00:55

All right, well did the inclusion of this

00:57

clause in the Constitution

00:59

lead to the eventual passage of A -

01:01

the Northwest Ordinance? [image of a land with a small water passage]

01:03

Well, actually, the Northwest Ordinance banned slavery

01:05

in the newly acquired Northwest Territory,

01:07

so those folks were busy converting fractions into whole numbers.

01:11

So cross out A.

01:12

Did the Three Fifths Compromise result in the passage of the [a woman calculating a math problem]

01:16

B - Proclamation of Neutrality?

01:19

That's foreign policy, not domestic,

01:21

since the Proclamation of Neutrality

01:22

declared the U.S. a neutral party in the growing conflict

01:26

between France and Britain. [image of flags, of France, Britain and The U.S]

01:28

And it goes for Pinckney's Treaty,

01:29

which established relaciones

01:32

between the U.S. and Spain. (Relationship.) Yeah.

01:36

That knocks out B and D.

01:38

Which means that the Three Fifths Compromise [man continues narrating]

01:40

resulted in the eventual passage of C -

01:43

the Missouri Compromise.

01:45

After slavery was banned in the Northwest Territory,

01:47

people on each side of the slavery debate began to freak out

01:50

over the admittance of new states to the Union. [two men playing tug of war]

01:53

The Missouri Compromise was one of the first

01:55

acts to try and even things out

01:57

between free and slave states

01:59

all in the hopes of maintaining a balance of power in Congress.

02:03

So C is the right answer.

02:04

The Founding Fathers may have had the greatest intentions, [two men talking about the quantity of salads on their plate]

02:07

but the Three Fifths Compromise didn't make it seem like

02:11

all men were created equal.
