Storyboard Text

  • Protective Tariff passed in 1828 by the Adams Administration
  • South Carolina’s perspective: state’s rights, tariff of abominations, nullify
  • Down with the tariff's.
  • A state could nullify, or refuse to accept, a federal law if it was not in that state's best interests. According to the states’ rights position, the Constitution was an agreement among the states to establish a national government. If an act of the national government went beyond the powers granted by the Constitution, a state had the right to refuse to obey.
  • Calhoun’s perspective: supports South Carolina
  • If a state could nullify any federal law it considered unconstitutional, the power of the federal government would cease. He feared nullification could destroy the Union.
  •  Jackson’s perspective: seek the help of Congress
  •  Henry Clay: authors the Compromise Tariff of 1830
  • Congress: passes the Force Bill of 1830
  • End Result: Both feel they have claimed victory
