  • President John Quincy Adams signed into law a high tariff to promote American manufacturing. The tariff harmed southern economy, particularly South Carolina. Southerners called this tariff "Tariff of Abominations. When Jackson became president in 1828 he did not reduce it.
  • March 1, 1833
  • Jackson signed into a law that eased tensions, but did not satisfy southern businesses and politicians. Vice President John C. Calhoun, resigned his office and went to Senate to better fight against the tariff.
  • March 15, 1833
  • Under Calhoun's leadership, politicians in South Carolina began organizing against the tariffs. They adopted the Ordinance of Nullification, ultimately refusing to follow, or obey, the law on Nov. 24, 1832. Some in South Carolina threatened to secede from the Union because of the tariff.
  • In response, Jackson issued the Force Bill. It allowed Jackson to use military force against South Carolina to enforce cooperation and squash threats to secession from the Union.
  • South Carolina agreed to compromise on a new tariff to avoid any further issues with Jackson. They repealed their Nullification Ordinance, but also nullified the Force Bill, as a symbol of it's principles. The Nullification Crisis viewed as a victory for Jackson, but the issues of nullification and secession would not be settled until the Civil War in the 1860s.
