This storyboard does not have a description.
Andrew Jackson passed a protective tariff on imported goods in 1828. The Northerners agreed with this tariff because it helped there lives become better. The Southerners thought this law was not fair because they got there goods from Europe and now they would be more expensive.
John C Calhoun, believed in state rights. Calhoun supported the southerners. He nullified this tax and said no this state would not pay this tax.
Andrew Jackson believes federal law is higher than state law. He gets help from congress and he claimed that what the South was doing was unconstitutional, so Jackson said everyone had to pay the tariff.
Henry Clay came up with the compromise tariff of 1830. After a dinner held for Jackson's Birthday, an both Jackson and Calhoun gave their opinions about it.
The Force Bill was when the government finally came to the decision to lower the tariffs and demanded all states to pay the new and much more reasonable amount of tax on the imported goods. The states were okay with the new tariff and agreed it was fair.
Henry Clay came up with a compromise that finally made the Northerners and Southerners happy. They passed a law that would make the tariff gradually get smaller and also the force bill. Both sides feel they have claimed a victory.
