Storyboard Text

  • In 1828 Congress passed a high tariff on american goods, the southerners hated it.
  • Andrew Jackson's vice president John C. Calhoun opposed the tariff. Southerners dubbed it the "Tariff of Abominations."
  • So John Calhoun came up with "nullification", saying that a state could nullify and federal law viewed as unconstitutional.
  • Many southerners were in agreement with Calhoun and hoped that Jackson would nullify the tariff.
  • Instead Jackson set a new tariff into law that was less harsh.
  • Many southerners were unhappy with this and in response Calhoun resigned his vice presidency, and South Carolina threatened to secede from the union.
