Storyboard Text

  • Word Gets Out
  • Did you hear about the talk they are going to have about a new Tariff?
  • No I did not. Hopefully it will decrease the price of goods.
  • The Tariff Debate In The House
  • The tariff will help by decreasing the price of goods.
  • Yes, but it will hurt the Southerners.
  • Jackson's Thoughts
  • Mr. President, South Carolina's vote was to nullify the tariff.
  • How could they do such a thing? Why did they call it an abomination?
  • People hear about the plan to put up a Tariff and people are getting confused.
  • The Southerners
  • I cant believe this, the tariff ruined us.
  • The Northeast wanted the tariff because it made their manufactured goods less expensive than imported goods. On the other hand, Southerners did not like the tariff since there were fewer manufacturers in the South that would benefit.
  • The Tariff Thought Out
  • The federal union should be preserved. This needs to stop.
  • Some Southerners were so outraged that they even wanted to break a way from the US. Although Jackson supported states’ rights, Southerners were shocked when he did not support nullification. Jackson was upset by South Carolina’s vote to nullify the Tariff.
  • The Tariff Debate Ends
  • Southerners did not like the tariff since there were fewer manufacturers in the South that would benefit. Southerners opposed protective tariffs because the region had little industry and relied heavily on imported goods.
  • Ya, there are less manufactures no because of them.
  • Daniel Webster, a senator from Massachusetts, argued against nullification. Jackson declared in 1830 that the federal union should be preserved, though Calhoun felt that liberty should take priority over the Union’s fate.
  • I argue against ll the nullification's.
  • South Carolina passed the Nullification Act, refusing to pay what they thought were illegal tariffs.When South Carolina passed a resolution claiming nullification of the tariff, Jackson threatened to send U.S. troops into South Carolina to enforce federal laws.
  • Everything is back to normal!!!
  • yayyyy!!!
