Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson and his Administration
  • I was thinking we should propose a tariff.
  • Agreed!
  • The Northeast
  • I think this tariff would be a good thing. It would give us a break from paying so much
  • The Southerners
  • I hate this tariff! The things we buy are expensive already! Why are they making it worth more than it really is?
  • Really? We can? Lets do it!
  • In 1828, Andrew Jackson and his administrations proposed a tariff which is a fee paid by merchants who imported goods.
  • John C Calhoun and the People Against the Tariff
  • That is true.
  • The Northeast wanted the tariff, because it made their manufactured goods less expensive than imported goods.
  • Andrew Jackson is Outraged at South Carolina !!
  • I support states’ rights but how dare you guys nullify this tariff! You are all so disobedient
  • Southerners opposed protective tariffs because the region had little industry (few factories) and relied heavily on imported goods
  • Congress Passed a Lower Tariff
  • We will lower the tariff so the Southerners can stop complaining.
  • Vice President John C. Calhoun argued that a group of states had the right to nullify, or cancel, a federal law it considered against state interests.
  • The states can nullify this outrageous tariff!
  • Wait, you're not going to support us?!?
  • Southerners were stunned when he did not support nullification and some Southerners wanted the Southern states break away from the United States.
  • Maybe we should just sucede
  • 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 and then Jackson had Congress pass a Force Bill, allowing military action to enforce acts of Congress. Then, South Carolina then nullified the Force Act.
  • I will send U.S. troops into South Carolina to enforce federal laws
