Tariff of ABOMINATIONS and the Doctrine of NULLIFICATION
Transcript of Tariff of ABOMINATIONS and the Doctrine of NULLIFICATION
Doctrine of Nullification i.Southerners were outraged: >:(
They had to sell their cotton at low prices to be competitive, but tariffs forced them to pay high prices for manufactured goods. a. 1828: Congress passed a bill
raised the tariffs (taxes) on
raw materials and
manufactured goods. ii.They felt that Congress
favored the North;
that the economic interests
of the North were determining
national policy. a.Long before the Civil War began,
South Carolina and other
Southern states had
threatened to secede,
withdraw from the Union. III.Secession The South did NOT secede because of the Tariff...
what would cause them to finally leave the Union, to secede??? Questions to Consider: I. The TARIFF of ABOMINATIONS 1.With the Tariff of Abominations they lost some of their profit from cotton sales. iii.South Carolina was the most
upset because their economy
was already in a slump.
They threatened to leave
the Union over the
Tariff of Abominations! II.The Doctrine of Nullification i.Thomas Jefferson suggested
it earlier too, in 1799 so states could
govern themselves without the
federal government making
all of the decisions for them. a. John C. Calhoun, from South Carolina,
suggested a way for SC to stay in the Union:
He said that a state had the right to
nullify, or reject, a federal law
that it considers unconstitutional. How could the Doctrine of Nullification
be good for the nation?
How might it cause problems?
