  • -The Tariff Debate-
  • There probably will be a crisis like always
  • Now that Congress has passed the law that puts higher tariffs on European goods, the US will make much more income.
  • -Southerners' Opinions-
  • As Southerners who don't manufacture much goods, we aren't being benefited from this law. We actually despise the law. The Tariff of Abomination is not helping us in any way!!!
  • -John C. Calhoun Steps In-
  • I will consider your ideas but we must stick with the high tariffs
  • Southerners and I will secede away if you don't take away the tariffs.
  • In 1828, Congress passed a law that placed a high tariff on imported European goods which leads to more income for the US. However, it soon leads to a crisis.
  • -Heated Debate-
  • I am Daniel Webster and I believe that Southerners don't have right to nullify
  • I am Robert Wayne, of the South, and I believe that we have the right to nullify.
  • The Southerners despised and hated the law greatly. Southerners, who usually farmed, didn't produce much wealth nor benefits. The hated the law so much that they named the law Tariff of Abomination.

  • -End of the Debate-
  • We won't let you guys separate without a fight!!!!!
  • The debate with the South and the Northern states continued. On January 1830, a Senator from Massachusetts named, Daniel Webster stepped in to attack the ideas of nullifaction. Then, Robert Hayne of the south stated they have the right to nullify and the debate continued.
  • President Jackson told his perspective of the debate. He explained that he believes tariffs are unfair but the idea of nullification and seceding from the country is truly unconstitutional. Then, John C. Calhoun resigns and becomes senator to talk to Congress.
  • President Jackson, if that's what you believe I will resign my vice presidency.
  • The debate further continued. To solve the problem, Congress passed a law in 832 to lower tariffs, however the Southerners still protested. South Carolina and other southern states passed a Nullification Act, refusing to pay the tariffs. President Jackson stepped in the debate again by stating the states cannot simply leave the Union without a fight.
  • We will revolt until there are no tariffs!!!
