Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff Debate
  • A Tariff would be in the best interest for America as a whole.
  • But President Jackson, you're a Democrat. You know that this would hurt farmers!
  • I don't know about that. That's a little iffy...
  • Praise for the Tariff
  • This new tariff is great! Business is booming! I heard that more jobs are being created.
  • Agreed! I don't understand why Southerners dislike the Tariff of 1828.
  • Hatred Towards the Tariff
  • Does that mean I won't get a slingshot for my birthday?
  • Son, we're in hard times. The Tariff of Abominations favors the Northern manufacturers, leaving us in the dust. We cannot export our cotton to Brtain, anymore.
  • Despite what his party wanted, Jackson created the tariff to help the entire country's economy. The tariff would keep American dollars in America and would create jobs.
  • Southerners Have a Plan
  • How can we put up with this anymore?!! If we are not getting the respect we deserve we'll get it back
  • Northern manufacturers embraced the tariff because it increased the prices of imported goods, which made the population choose to buy the cheaper local goods.
  • Jackson Attempts to Set Things Right
  • If Southerners are not going to obey my tariff, then I'll force them to obey.
  • What if Southerners nullify that? What will you do then? Lower the taxes?
  • Because most factories were in the North, Southerners had to deal with high prices and the inability to export cotton to their trading partner, Britain. Southerners thought that they were being segregated.
  • The Tariff Disagreement and Compromise
  • What would be best for the country?
  • Southern states were fed up with the lack of consideration they were getting from Congress and wanted to nullify the laws they choose, and would go as far as planning to secede from the U.S.
  • That's right! We should have the right to nullify what laws are against our interests. And if Congress does not listen to that, then maybe we should secede.
  • During a dinner held by his supporters, Jackson announced that the unity of the U.S. is very important and would force them to obey. Southerners nullified the Force Act, and Jackson had to settle for a low tariff, which hardly played the role it was intended to.
  • We'll have to see what they do.
  • The tariff divided America. Political and regional differences formed disagreements over what would be the best for the country. Jackson strived to make decisions that would be best for the nation, but in the end, the states always fought for what they wanted.
  • There should not be a tariff! The nation is better off to trade with any country.
  • Aren't you the least bit patriotic? Think about how the country would prosper when our money is kept within the nation.
