Nullification Crisis

Exact DefinitionEdit

The South was getting fed up with Jacksons tarrifs which greatly hurt their economy. They threated to nullify  the Tariff of Abominations  more commonly known as the Tariff of 1828. President Andrew Jackson threatened use of the military to enforce federal acts of Congress. Luckily, violence was avoided thanks to Clay's Compromise where the tariff's effects would be lessened over time until 1842.


One of the causes leading up to the civil war. Emphasized the whole North vs the South ordeal.
