Storyboard Text

  • Tariff of 1828
  • Actually I'm not really sure. Its hard to explain really. I agreed at some conditions, but it seemed a little difficult for our country if you ask me.
  • Hey I know that we are guarding the office while the president is sleeping, but do you agree with that tariff he was speaking of today?
  • Southerners vs. Northerners
  • We will calm down if the Southerners will agree with us on this tariff!!
  • Guys calm down! Northerners and Southerners should be equal!
  • We will not agree to this tariff! We barley have any manufacturers, so just give up!
  • Jackson doesn't support!
  • Oh my goodness. I never knew that! If I could just write this all down...
  • I am not completely sure if I even want to support nullification. Do you follow?
  • In the year 1828, America and its Americans disagreed about the tariff, which is a fee paid by merchants who imported their goods.
  • The Tariff Debate
  • I wonder what Jackson will say about this?
  • Nullification is not that horrible! I'm not sure if Andrew Jackson will change his mind.
  • When the tariff came to the Northerners, they agreed to the tariff and wanted it, because it made their manufactured goods way less expensive and less money then imported goods. The Southerners did not like the tariff since there were fewer manufacturers in the South that would actually benefit.
  • The Tariff of Abominations
  • The Southerners and Northerners are still not listening to us, and they might go to war!
  • Even though Andrew Jackson supported states' rights, he didn't support nullification. This, to the Southerners, was a big surprise. Then Jackson was outraged by South Carolina’s vote to nullify the Tariff of Abominations, a tariff that causes disgust or hatred.
  • Summary
  • Hmmm... I wonder what will happen next.
  • I'm not sure what to do about these tariffs. I don't think I will agree to nullification anytime soon.
  • Daniel Webster, who was a senator from Massachusetts, argued against nullification. He challenged a speech defending nullification by Robert Hayne, a senator from South Carolina. Jackson also declared in 1830 that the federal union should be preserved, even though Calhoun felt that liberty should take priority over the Union’s fate.
  • Congress passed a lower tariff in 1832 to appease the South, but Southern leaders still protested. South Carolina passed the Nullification Act, refusing to pay what they thought were illegal tariffs. When South Carolina passed a resolution claiming nullification of the tariff, Jackson threatened to send U.S. troops into South Carolina to enforce federal laws. He had Congress pass a Force Bill, allowing military action to enforce acts of Congress. South Carolina nullified this.
  • A War between the North and the South!
  • The main idea of this was that the introduction of the tariff on imported goods caused many Southerners to turn against the government and lobby for state rights.
