  • The Tariff of Abominations
  • Oh how I despise of this tariff! The price of my French fabric has gone up tremendously.
  • Agreed Madame!
  • The Lower Tariff
  • Please retrieve the compromise bill regarding the lower tariff from my desk so I can sign it. I hope South Carolina cooperates!
  • The Nullification Act
  • This lower tariff is unacceptable! We must nullify it!
  • Agreed.
  • At this point in time, the Tariff of Abominations has been passed. This Tariff was proposed by Alexander Hamilton and it was heavily opposed by the southerners.
  • The Force Act
  • Mrs. Johnson, I am here to collect your taxes, they are very late!
  • Because South Carolina nullified the previous tariff, Jackson agreed to a compromise bill to lower the tariff.
  • The Force Act was Nullified
  • Mr. Jackson, South Carolina nullified the Force Act!
  • This is the third time! This is an outrage!
  • South Carolina was still not happy, even after the lower tariff was passed. So, they passed a nullification act which enraged Jackson.
  • The Compromise
  • This compromise tariff should keep us both happy. I appreciate your cooperation.
  • Thank you Mr. President!
  • After South Carolina nullified the lower tariff, Jackson passed the Force Act. The Force Act used the armed military as tax collectors.
  • South Carolina nullified the Force Act, because they found it to be unfair.
  • A compromise tariff was then worked out to ensure that both sides were happy. This debate highlighted the issues regarding states' rights, and it was the start to many disagreements among the nation.
