Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff Debate
  • What is this tariff about?
  • Mr. President, we have a problem. The Congress just issued a tariff which angers the South massively.
  • Before the Debate
  • Before the tariff was issued...
  • Come to my shop! Cheaper goods than american!
  • South speaks back
  • After the tariff was issued... in the south...
  • I agree completely!
  • This tariff isn't fair! We should break away from the nation and make our own country!
  • This is when the Congress just issued the tariff. This tariff was made to increase the cost of European goods imported to the United States because European and British goods were a huge competition at that time. This effected the south because they had to buy goods from the north due to this new tariff.
  • The Congress' Comprise
  • Back at the white house...
  • This isn't good. We should do something quick before the South will break away for good!
  • Markets are being flooded by European and British goods which are way cheaper than american. This makes american manufacturers have a hard time to compete with these goods
  • The South Angers
  • The Congress thinks that they can just lower the cost of the tariff and it will fix everything!? Well there WRONG!
  • The tariff only helped the North not the South. This is the reason why they wanted to secede. Also Vice President Calhoun argued that states have the right to nullify or cancel, a federal law that they consider against state interests and unconstitutional.
  • Congress takes Action
  • Lets issue the Force Act and show the South who is the boss!
  • The Congress decreased the tariff massively. But the South still disagreed and continued to threaten the National Government that they will secede.
  • Hmm... lets reduce this tariff. Hopefully they will agree with this.
  • The South was still not satisfied. South Carolina passed the Nullification Act therefore refusing to pay the tariffs. South Carolina threatened to secede if the federal government tried to enforce the tariffs.
  • This shows how the Congress cares about the South! Lets continue to threaten to secede!
  • In response Jackson had the Congress pass the Force Act. This allowed military action to enforce acts of Congress. South Carolina nullified the Force Act as well. Jackson really wasn't going to attack the South, he just wanted to scare them and make them agree with the tariff. The South realized Jackson wasn't going to attack and they called his bluff. Eventually, Jackson removed the tariff.
  • Yea!!!
