Storyboard Text

  • The Tariff Debate
  • Americans are buying to much from Britain. They nee to buy more from the United States!
  • We need to create a high tariff to lower this!
  • The North States
  • This tariff is GREAT!
  • I know! Now that other foreign goods are so expensive, more people are buying from us!
  • We HATE this tariff! Goods are SO much more expensive now!
  • The South States
  • No! we want NO TARIFF!
  • Even lower?
  • Fine, we'll lower it.
  • Americans were not buying enough from the states, so the government issued a high tariff on foreign goods in hopes to get more people to buy from their own country rather than Britain.
  • The South Refuses
  • You know what!? We nullify this tariff!
  • YEAH! We refuse it!
  • When the tariff was issued, the north states were elated because their sales went up. This was because of the high tariff on goods outside of the states. They supported the tariff because it made them more money.
  • Jackson Tries to Use Force
  • You can't do that! I will bring in the military to force you to obey! It's called the FORCE act!
  • We nullify THAT!
  • I thought he would support state rights!
  • However, the south states' reaction was completely different. They loathed the tariff. It forced them to buy from the north states, which they did not like, because goods from Britain became so expensive. They protested it until the government offered to lower it, which they turned down. They wanted NO tariff whatsoever. Even after the government offered to lower it MORE, the south states still protested the tariff.
  • A Tiny Win
  • Great work guys. This was a small win for us and state rights!
  • The south states decided to make the Nullification Act. In this, the states refused to obey a law that they believed was illegal. They refused the tariff, which made President Jackson angry.
  • After the south states nullified the tariff, Jackson made the Force Bill. This allowed him to bring in the military to force the people to obey the law. However, the south states then nullified that! The south states were shocked that Calhoun, the Vice President, had supported the states and Jackson did not, even though he himself was from the south.
  • To conclude, when a high tariff was placed on foreign goods, the southern states thought the government was out to get them. They protested and refused the tariff, Vice President Calhoun supporting them. Jackson however, did not, which shocked the people, as he was from the south himself. The Nullification Act was made, allowing the people to nullify any law that they felt was illegal. In the end, this ended up being a victory for the south states and a tiny win for state rights in general.
