  • The Tariff Debate
  • Back in business because of the High Tariff!
  • The Southerners' Rage
  • Us farmers won't be able to do all the work ourselves if slavery is banned
  • Southerner:The British will not remain quiet. They will end trade with us.
  • Southerners: We will not pay a tariff since it is favoring the Northerners more.
  • Congress's Agreement
  • This is ridiculous! They can't just not pay a tariff! Let's try and see if they would pay if we lowered the taxes.
  • Well, I don't think they will pay.
  • Jackson lowered the tariff, we should pay it before it gets worse. Oh, and what happened about the right to secede?
  • In 1828, Congress had passed a high tariff so that the Northerners could compete with Britain in manufacturing. The Northeast appreciated the tariff, since it help their goods be less expensive than imported goods. If the Americans' goods were less expensive than the imported goods, more people would buy the American goods, improving the economy. Though, there are many advantages to this tariff, it marked the end of the" Era of Good Feelings."
  • Southern's Stubborness
  • Northerner: Thanks to the tariff, my business was saved from being shut down and now I am earning much more money than before.
  • Don't Worry! Our supporter from the Democratic Party, Calhoun, got a Nullification Act created. Jackson can't do anything to us now.
  • The Southerners strongly disliked the high tariff because there were less manufacturers that would benefit in the south, they believed the government may ban slavery, they thought the British would stop buying their cotton and resources, and that this tariff would make the people from the south lose a lot of money.
  • The Force Act
  • I, representing the Congress, pronounce the Force Bill
  • Andrew Jackson, the president, was angry, but decided to negotiate. Since he did support the tariff, he decided to lower the tariff.
  • A Cunning Victory
  • Even after lowering the tariff, the Southerners refused to pay, since they wanted no tariff. Therefore, the Nullification Act was created with the help of the senate member and vice president, John Calhoun. In this act, the Southerners could nullify any bill or act they do not accept to follow. Although, the Southerners wanted more. They wanted to gain the right to secede from the U.S. whenever they would like to, but the government did not accept this.
  • Are you out of your senses,Billy? We have fought for long and we won't sit in peace until there is no tariff. Also, news came and there is no chance of us to gain the right to secede.
  • Jackson tried one last time to convince the Southerners. He had made Congress pass a law in which if someone refused to pay the tariff, the would be forced by an military. Though Jackson already had the power to do so, he got the act passed so that it would scare the Southerners to pay.
  • Now the Southerners will have to play, or else I will send the military to force them to pay the tariff.
  • When word came to the Southerners regarding the Force Act, the Southerners had reacted by simply using their power of nullifying the bill. Then, Jackson had given up on them and kept no tariff, marking the victory of the Southerners, making them feel more powerful. This tariff proved that even after going through so much together, there was no actually national unity throughout the United States.
  • Southerner:We Won!! We are so powerful! Nothing can stop us now.
  • I am done. There will no longer be a tariff of any kind.
