Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff is Proposed
  • We need a tariff in order to help the American economy.
  • The Tariff is Opposed
  • THIS TARIFF IS UNFAIR! We have the right to nullify this tariff in order to keep European goods cheap!
  • The Tariff is Debated
  • No, Calhoun, the states do not have the right to go against the government's orders and nullify this tariff!
  • The states have the right to nullify any act that they feel is unconstitutional!
  • In 1828, Andrew Jackson’s administration propose a tariff to increase the American economy.
  • Webster- Hayne Debate
  • The South does not have the necessities in order to profit or live off of this tariff! We need European goods at a cheap rate!
  • The South oppose the tariff because they want to live a lifestyle on the high end things the bought from Europe, and the tariff would make everything shipped from outside of the United States more expensive and they also did not have the necessary factories to manufacture goods for themselves. However, the North is fine with the tariff because they have all of the factories needed to manufacture goods.
  • Calhoun Resigns and Government Complies
  • I suppose that we can lower the tariff in order to please both the Northern and the Southern states.
  • The president and vice president had different views on whether the tariff should be put in place and whether that states had the right to nullify it. John C. Calhoun thought that the states had the right to nullify the tariff, but Andrew Jackson believed that the states did not have any right to go against the federal government.
  • The Force Act is Made and Nullified and The Government Finally Compromised
  • Daniel Webster and Robert Hayne, senators from opposing states Massachusetts and South Carolina, debated on the nullification of the Tariff of Abominations.
  • Robert Hayne
  • This tariff will help our American economy and help us grow as a country!!
  • Daniel Webster
  • John C. Calhoun finally resigns and becomes a senator in support of the Southern states. In 1832, the federal government decides to lower the tariff in order to appease the South and to attempt to make both the North and the South happy.
  • NO! If states can't have the right to nullify tariffs I can't be vice president anymore! Even if the government DOES lower the tariff.
  • Andrew Jackson has Congress pass the Force Act which makes the United States military the tax collectors in South Carolina. South Carolina then nullifies the Force Act which makes Andrew Jackson very mad. A compromise tariff is passed to make South Carolina happy.
  • The Force Act is passed and also nullified by the Southern States- which makes Jackson livid.
