14 Nullification Crisis And the Tariff of Abominations

15 After War of 1812, British begin dumping goods in the U.S. The Conflict

16 Congress passes the Tariff of 1828 in May of that year.

17 Time to draw!

18 The South opposes the tariff, with South Carolina leading the opposition.

19 Half way home! What should I know? The U.S. Congress enacted the Tariff of 1828 in May of 1828. The tariff was designed to protect manufactured goods from unhealthy foreign competition. Dumping Goods- To sell a goods in another country at a much lower price than in the home country The South opposes the Tariff. It causes the cost of goods to go up for the South because they must now purchase the more expensive Northern goods (or pay even more for cheap foreign goods that are heavily taxed), while lowering the amount the South makes by exporting cotton. South Carolina leads the opposition to the tariff.

20 Tariff of 1832 Quits VP to support home state of S.C. Writes South Carolina Exposition and Protest. The ‘Solution(s)’



23 Force Bill

24 Compromise: Reduce tariff over time

25 Crisis Averted! (this time)

26 Jackson must choose a new VP for 1832. He chooses his Secretary of State, Martin Van Buren.

27 Nullification Part Two Review Calhoun resigns to support South Carolina in opposition to the Tariff of 1832 Jackson chooses Martin Van Buren as his replacement South Carolina Exposition and Protest, written by Calhoun, outlines the idea of “state’s rights” States Rights- the idea that the states’ power is superior to that of the federal government Nullification- Declaring that a FEDERAL bill or law will not be enforced in a state. Jackson acquires a force bill in order to prepare the army to enforce the Tariff of 1832 Compromise plans for tariff to be gradually reduced over time, crisis is averted

28 The National Bank A Fight to the Death

29 Second National Bank established under Madison in 1816 (Chartered for 20 years)

30 Nicholas Biddle, president of the National Bank, tries to renew charter in 1832 (4 years before it expires)

31 Congress passed the bill that renewed the Charter. However, it did not become law because…

32 It had to get past Andrew Jackson, who HATED the national bank.

33 Jackson vetoes the Bank Charter Bill, because: -Jackson believes bank is unconstitutional (strict Constitution) -Jackson feels the National Bank could be heavily influenced by the rich

34 Chief Justice John Marshall, McCulloch v. Maryland, 1819 Bank is Constitutional- Elastic Clause States cannot tax/interfere with National Bank

35 Congress doesn’t have votes to override veto.

36 Jackson then weakens the National Bank by moving all of the money to “Pet Banks”

37 The Trail of Tears The Struggle to Stay


39 The 5 “Civilized Tribes” Look at the picture: Why might the white settlers see Chief John Ross (and his tribe, the Cherokee) as “civilized”?

40 The Cherokees: Adopted US currency Converted to Christianity Began farming Purchased land 1821- Sequoyah invents written language 1828- publish newspaper, the Cherokee Phoenix, in both Cherokee and English

41 Codified Removal: The Indian Removal Act

42 Indian Removal Act of 1830 Passes in House by 5 votes Jackson supports removal

43 Cherokees adopt “white” ways -newspaper, Cherokee Phoenix -white dress -U.S. currency -purchase land -farming Indian Removal Act of 1830 requires Cherokees to move from tribal lands to “Indian Territory” in Oklahoma

44 Many in the United States oppose Indian Removal including author Ralph Waldo Emerson (pictured)

45 Worcester v. Georgia Marshall rules: Cherokees are dependent nation, can make treaties with U.S. federal government Federal overrides state authority, therefore Georgia must obey federal treaties “Justice Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it”- President Andrew Jackson.

46 U.S. Army marches Cherokee 1000 miles to new lands Not enough supplies are ordered for the trek Over 4000 are lost on the march westward

47 Many Seminoles evaded capture and small communities remain in Florida today Many Cherokee were successful in evading removal or purchasing land to remain “legally” in the East Cherokees formed a corporation through which they purchased land for the Eastern Tribe

48 U.S. public was divided over the legality of Removal Worcester v. Georgia- Cherokees won, Georgia must listen to treaties that protect Cherokee land Jackson enforced removal anyway Many Cherokee were lost on the trek West Fewer would have died if proper supplies had been ordered Despite the Removal Act, many Seminoles and Cherokee remained in the traditional tribal lands after 1838
