Storyboard Text

  • I am proposing a tariff to help America's economy!
  • The Northern opinion on the Tariff
  • I am so excited for the tariff! My sales have already increased dramatically.
  • There should be more tariffs! Everyone likes that the American goods are cheaper than the imported goods!
  • The Southern opinion on the Tariff
  • The government is biased toward us! They know we rely on European imports to survive! We will have to spend fortunes on taxes!
  • This doesn't even benefit us either! There are almost no factories here. Can't we nullify the's part of a state's rights!
  • The North loved the tariffs because they made people buy more American Manufactured goods.
  • The North and South given the Tariff
  • The government has agreed on a national protective tariff on goods. From now on, merchants will have to pay a fee to import goods.
  • The North liked having a tariff on imported goods. This was because it made their own goods cheaper. This would increase their business and they would make a lot more money.
  • Calhoun's Declaration
  • I feel so betrayed by you and South Carolina! You went behind my back to support people against me! Anyways, I am not accepting this silly declaration!
  • The south however, did not like the tariff. They relied heavily on imported goods and this increased the taxes they had to pay. Also, since there was very little manufactures in the South, the tariff wouldn't benefit many. They believed that the tariff showed the government's bias toward the South.
  • The force act and Final Compromise
  • They are not happy! South Carolina has nullified the lower tariff!
  • In the above cell, a government official has just notified the North and South of the protective tariff on goods.
  • Vice President John Calhoun supported the state's nullification of the tariff. He wrote the state's declaration and showed it to President Jackson. Jackson, however, did not like the South Carolina's vote against the tariff. He was outraged and felt betrayed by Calhoun. He felt that South Carolina had disobeyed him.
  • Mr. President, I have a declaration from South Carolina to nullify your national tariff. I am supporting this controversy and I wrote this document with them.
  • Jackson passed the Force Act, allowing him to send troops to enforce the law. South Carolina then nullified that act. There was only a compromise after the Force Act was passed.
  • i am passing the Force act, allowing me to send troops to collect taxes! But, I will work on a compromise, only after the Force Act is in action.
