The American Yawp Summary

The American Yawp Summary

one of the important things tackled in the selected pages is the process of ratifying the constitution. During the ratification of the constitution, the congress voted for the proposed constitution to be sent to the congress that was convening in New York. During the process of the ratification, the critics of the proposed constitution mobilised to convince the voters in different states to vote to oppose the constitution.  The voting down of the proposal on bills of human rights was the omission that motivated the critics of the constitution to further reject it. The critics argued that the omission of the bill of rights from the proposed constitution was going to place the citizens at risk of losing their liberty to the government. People who supported the proposed constitution argued that incorporating the bill of rights in the constitution was not only dangerous but also redundant. Another thing tackled is how the citizens debated the merits of the constitution. The citizens had the opportunity to discuss the validity of the constitution articles, newspapers, sermons, and letters (Locke and Wright 2019)


Another vital issue discussed in the selected pages is the rights and the compromise. This topic discusses the Ten amendments which were added in the constitution in 1791. The Ten amendments constituted the bills of rights. The compromises which were made did not give women the right to air their voices and opinions and voting was only restricted to men. Because of the compromises there was ban of the transatlantic trade which was viewed as violent and immoral. The African representation was also considered with the compromises even though the constitution counted each black person as three fifth of an individual for the purposes of representation.  There was dirty compromise in New England with proposal of constitutional provision that was aimed at protecting the foreign slave trade for 20 years. Despite the ban on slave trade, Africans were sold at auctions. (Locke and Wright 2019)

Another important aspect tackled is the topic of free and enslaved Black Americans and the challenges to slavery. Slave Gabriel was at the forefront in mobilizing approximately 100o enslaved men to end the issue of slavery (Locke and Wright 2019).
