  • Southern Response
  • There will be a tax on imported goods from Europe . There is a tariff.
  • Maybe we should seceed
  • We hate the Tariff
  • In 1828, there was a disagreement about the tariff that was passed. A tariff is a tax on imported goods and many citizens had different views on it. The tariff caused regional differences. These regional differences between the north and the south and there grew tension between rich and poor.
  • Nullification
  • The states cannot nullify the tariff!
  • The Southern states should not have the right to nullify this because it would be unconstitutional.
  • Then northerners were the most happy about the tariff because the tariff proved to make their factories prosper. The tariff made European goods more expensive so that North was able to prosper and sell teir goods.
  • Jackson vs. Calhoun
  • The federal government is being very biased here and they are supporting the northern states more. The Southern states should have the right to nullify the tariff.
  • The Southerners on the other side were very upset with the tariff because it proved to make the European goods more expensive. The South bought their goods mainly from Europe because they had the money and the south contained few factories.
  • Compromise Tariff
  • Here is the compromise for the tariff, we will lower the tariff as long as the south stays in our nation.
  • I agree to these terms because it is fair.
  • The other debate on the tariff was the debate on whether the Southern states could use their power of nullification to nullify the tariff. This means that the Southern states would not have to follow the tariff's regulations. Many people argued against this and many others argued that the southern states had the right to do this.
  • States can nullify the tariff!!!
  • There was also tension between Calhoun and Jackson. Jackson had opposite views on this situation. Calhoun argued that the Southern states had the right to nullify the tariff. Surprisingly, Jackson disagreed because he thought that the federal government should have more power.
  • Go Jackson!
  • Calhoun!
  • The Tariff Compromise was a compromise that said that the tariff tax would become lower and that the south would stay within the United States. This document was very important to keep the southern states from sceeding and to end the constatnt debate between the northern and southern states.
  • It's FAIR the tension is over for now!
