8 Nullification & States Rights Calhoun & states rights supporters claimed that the Nation was made out of states – so states have the right to nullify or decide what laws are constitutional within its bordersStates should have the right to limit the power of the federal governmentCalhoun & many in the South thought that the Tariff of Abomination only favored one region of the country ( Federal gov. should not have the power to create laws that only favored few not all nation- South Carolina should have the right to nullify the tariffs that only supported the North
9 Spiral Review: States’ Rights Which is another example of states’ rights and doctrine of nullification that we previously study?Kentucky & Virginia Resolution ( states response to the Alien & Sedition Acts during Adams presidency ( 2nd president)No Judicial Review yet! ( Madison VS Madison) Power given to Supreme Court to decide Constitutionality of a law
10 Tariffs – Tears nation apart How did the issue of tariffs threaten to tear the nation apart?( remember to write in your own words… not just copying the answers)The South resented the Northeast for pushing higher tariffs ( taxes) without regard for the effects on the South’s economy. South Carolina threatened to secede or withdraw from the Union over the issue of tariffs.
11 “Liberty & Union, now and forever, one and inseparable!” States’ Rights DebateWebster-Hayne debateSenate debate over doctrine of nullificationDaniel WebsterRobert Y. HayneSenator from Massachusetts (North)Against state rightsPro strong Federal Gov.Opposed nullification“Liberty & Union, now and forever, one and inseparable!”Senator from South Carolina ( South)Pro state rightsAgainst strong Federal Gov.Supported the idea of nullification
12 DebateWebster: Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable.Jackson: Our Federal Union—it must be preserved.Calhoun: The Union, next to our liberty, most dear. ( states’ rights)
13 Secession Secession= withdrawal from the union ( to separate) South Carolina threaten secession, or to separate from the Union as a response to the high tariffs that were affecting their economy.At the end Henry Clay came up with a compromise and the crisis was resolved – South Carolina stayed in the Union
14 Jackson replied that he would “crush SC” and any other state that tried to join them. To avoid bloodshed, Henry Clay got Congress to pass the Compromise of This gradually lowered the tariff rates back to the 1816 level.

16 National Bank Controversy Jackson opposed the Bank of the United States. He felt it was controlled by a group of wealthy Easterners who were using it to become even wealthier.Jackson also claims the bank is unconstitutional. Although the Supreme Court disagreed in the case of McCulloch v. Maryland.Many farmers and common people were on Jackson’s side, because they didn’t like the bank’s lending policies.
17 Jackson decided to make the National Bank the major issue in the Presidential election of 1832. He tells the people to vote for Clay (Republican) if they want to keep the bank and vote for Jackson (Democrat) if they want to get rid of the bank.When Jackson won the election, he killed the Bank of the US by taking all the government’s money out of the bank.He placed the government’s money in a number of state banks. These were nicknamed “pet banks.”
