This Tariff doesn't count
If there's a war, i'm leading the army.
I know i won this battle.
President Jackson was explaining to "The South" about the tariff on materials made from other countries to make them more expensive. The South saw this as the National Government telling them what they could and could not do.
In March of 1832, the South declared that the tariff didn't count. President Jackson was tired of people protesting, he said if there was a war, he would lead the army. Congress supported the idea, so they passed an act authorizing the president to use military power to enforce the laws.
South Carolina had given up its protest. Both sides nevertheless, claimed victory. Jackson had strongly defended the Union. South Carolina had demonstrated that a single state could stand up to the U.S Government.
