Storyboard Text

  • 1828- Protective Tariff is Proposed
  • I propose we create a protective tariff!
  • We think so too, Mr. President.
  • Debate in the South
  • South Carolina
  • The government is so biased towards us Southerners.
  • We should nullify that dumb tariff!
  • Debate in the North
  • More money for us!
  • After this tariff, business will be booming!
  • Andrew Jackson and his administration proposed a tariff to increase the American economy. The tariff placed a fee on merchants who imported goods. The people in the North supported the tariff, while the Southerners opposed it.
  • Nullification
  • I do not approve off this nullification business!
  • Wealthy Southerners wanted to nullify the tariff because it made their lifestyle more expensive. They thought the federal government was being bias against Southerners because they had very little factories and relied on imported goods.
  • Force Act
  • The people in the North wanted the tariff because they had the factories needed to produce goods. It would make their manufactured goods less expensive than their competitors imported goods.
  • 1832- A Compromise is Made
  • Things are better now that the government made a compromised tariff.
  • When Andrew Jackson didn't support nullification, people in the South were stunned, for they thought he supported state's rights. Then, despite Andrew Jackson's beliefs, South Carolina passed the Nullification Act.
  • But what about the state's rights sir?
  • When Jackson lowered the tariff and South Carolina confirmed their nullification of the tariff, he had Congress pass the Force Act. This act made the US military the tax collectors in South Carolina. In response, SC nullified that act as well.
  • South Carolina
  • This is all because of that Force Act!
  • A compromise tariff is passed to make South Carolina happy. This "Tariff Debate" reflected the rights of states. Also, many Southerners protested for states rights when they turned against the government.
