Storyboard Text

  • John C. Calhoun
  • South Carolina does not approve of these tariffs and we want to nullify it because it is unfair!
  • Andrew Jackson
  • The Tariff of 1828 and The Tariff of 1832 are now passed!
  • I am here today because South Carolina wants to nullify the tariffs of 1828 and 1832
  • NO SOUTH CAROLINA CANNOT NULLIFY A LAW BECAUSE THAT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
  • It was 1832, and Andrew Jackson recently passed the Tariff of 1828 and the Tariff of 1832. However, these tariffs certainly did not please everybody, especially South Carolina. Lead by John C. Calhoun, South Carolina wanted to nullify the Tariff of 1832 and the Tariff of 1828 because they thought it was unfair and unconstitutional.
  • THAT IS IT! I AM GOING TO PASS THE FORCE BILL!
  • AND SOUTH CAROLINA WILL REPEAL THE NULLIFICATION
  • As mentioned, South Carolina was very unhappy with these tariffs, and John C. Calhoun was leading the state in proving the point that the tariffs of 1832 and 1828 were unconstituional, and therefore cannot be enforced.
  • I am Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun and I wrote Clay's compromise which helped resolve the nullification crisis
  • Andrew Jackson argued that only the federal government can nullify a law, and therefore, if South Carolina was to nullify the tariffs of 1832 and 1828, it would be considered unconstitutional.

  • Finally, Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun wrote Clay's Compromise. This tariff helped resolve the nullification crisis. At last, South Carolina repealed the nullification of the two tariffs.
