Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff of Abomination of 1828 made Southerners mad. They felt that the tax affected them more than the Northern states because they only made raw goods and all of the industries were up North. 
  • Tariff of Abomination
  • 45% TAX!!!
  • Election of 1832
  • In 1832 Jackson won the election to Clay by 219-49. Jackson wanted to divorce government from the economy, go back to a government where it's role was limited, and give more power to the states.
  • Tariff of 1832
  • Jackson decided to make the tariff of 1832 which would lower the tax from 45% to 35%. This tax would still be protective, however,  still not fulfilling the southerners request. 
  • I will lower the tariff from 45% to 35% maybe that will make the southerners happy. 
  • Reaction to Tariff of 1832
  • Southerners were not happy with the decrease because it fell short of their demands. South Carolina, in particular, was not happy, they nullified the tariff and if Jackson tried to collect the tax by force they threatened Secession.
  • 35% now? That's not what we asked for this is an outrage!
  • Jackson's reaction to South Carolina nullifying the tariff
  • Jackson couldn't believe the people of South Carolina were still angry, he had just lowered the tariff. He threatened to hang nullifiers such as Calhoun. He even dispatched an army to South Carolina. 
  • One tariff and they think they are just going to get up and leave!!!
  • Compromise Tariff of 1833
  • The compromise tariff was introduced by Henry Clay. The plan was that the tariff would be reduced by 10% for the next 8 years this plan was accepted by both the South and North.
  • The tariff will be reduced by 10% for the next 8 years. Eventually, in 1816 it will come down to 25%
