Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff Debate
  • Have you heard about the new tariff? I don't think the government understands how it will hurt us.
  • To be honest, I believe that the government favors the Northern states.
  • The Northerners' Side
  • Have you heard of the new tariff?
  • Yes! I hope it will help our businesses to prosper.
  • Secession?
  • Well, I will not put up with it. We Southerners are going to secede!
  • My biggest fear of this tariff is that if we stop buying Britain's goods, they might stop buying ours!
  • When the Southerners heard about the tariff, they were extremely upset. They didn't want to stop trading with Britain, and they thought that the government was showing more favor towards the Northern states, since they were the manufacturers.
  • The Vice President's Arguement
  • The Southerners are so upset about the new tariff! I think that they should have the right to nullification!
  • The Northerners, however, liked the new tariff, as it would help their businesses to prosper.
  • Jackson's Declaration
  • You aren't serious!
  • The Southerners were so angered that they wanted to secede. The Vice President soon heard about their plan.
  • The End
  • The vice president, John C. Calhoun, argued that states should have the right to nullify. He wanted states' rights to be stronger. However...
  • I will have to think about it. For now, let us just lower the tariff.
  • President Jackson refused to allow states to nullify. He firmly believed in upholding the Constitution. This angered John C. Calhoun, and he soon quit his job as Vice President.
  • After the tariff was lowered, the Southerners still were not happy. They were also unhappy with Andrew Jackson's decision...
  • I am serious. I refuse to let the Union become broken, and I want to uphold the Constitution. Therefore, that staes will not have the right to nullification.
  • This debate gave states' rights a victory. It also marked the end of the Era of Good Feelings, as previous disagreements were starting up again.
  • Yay! No tariff! We just nullified them.
  • These Southerners are too much...
