Connecticut Compromise

Also known as the Great Compromise, this was Roger Sherman's proposal for respecting the fears of the smaller states, as well as the reasonable rights of the larger ones. One house of Congress, the Senate, would allot the same number of seats to each State. The House would then allot seats on the basis of population.
