Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff Debate
  • I've got it! To create jobs and keep American money in the country, we should enforce a tariff. Manufacturers will surely thank us, AND it will help our economy as well.
  • Brilliant! Let's call this plan the Tariff of 1828.
  • Southerners Object!
  • We shouldn't have to tolerate laws that aren't in the best interest of our state!
  • This is ridiculous! As usual, these tariffs ONLY benefit the North. How are we Southerners supposed to profit?
  • Calhoun Takes a Stand
  • I, for one, think that that all states should have the right to nullify laws against their best interest. This tariff only hurts the South!
  • How dare you undermine federal power? The Union must remain together at all costs!
  • Well said, Vice President Calhoun. Finally, someone speaks out on our behalf. Pity the same can not be said for Mr. Jackson.
  • In 1828, a tariff was enacted in order to promote the purchase of American goods and boost the economy.
  • Jackson Advocates for Unity
  • Regardless of whether Southerners approve of the taxes, federal union must be preserved.
  • You're a traitor to the South!
  • Southerners quickly objected to it, claiming that the tariff would only benefit manufacturers in the North. Some extremists were so outraged that they proposed secession from the United States.
  • Congressmen Respond
  • Mr. President, the South has passed the Nullification Act...
  • Good thing I'm creating the Force Bill. That way, military acts can enforce the laws of Congress. Watch them try to resist now!
  • Vice President John C. Calhoun, a native Southerner, argued that states should be able to nullify laws that did not benefit them.
  • A Victory for States' Rights
  • At last! The South gets the respect it deserves, thanks to the Nullification Act.
  • Jackson's pro-tariff stance caused more tension between the North and South. Two years later in 1832, Calhoun resigned after winning a seat on the Senate.
  • I can't tolerate this much longer...Perhaps a job on the Senate will allow me to protect us from this abomination.
  • Even a lower tariff couldn't appease the South. Southern leaders passed the Nullification Act, which allowed them to nullify any laws that were not in their best interest. In response, Jackson passed the Force Act, which was nullified.
  • Sir, South Carolina nullified that too.
  • South Carolina's efforts to nullify the Force Act proved worthwhile. This rejection of the tariff and federal authority was a major victory in the eyes of states' rigths advocates.
  • The pesky tariff won't bother us again.
