Many Southerners believed the tariff regulations hurt them financially. They were viewed as tariffs to protect Northern industries at the expense of Southern consumers. The tariffs made them pay higher costs to buy foreign made products.

Why did southern states object to and resist the tariffs of 1828 and 1832?

The southerners bought more foreign goods than the northerners did. So this kind of led to sectionalism because the northerners thought differently and the southerners were angry because it this tariff affected a lot of people.

Why did Southerners resist the increased tariff in 1828 arguing it should be nullified?

Because it looked like a Northern tax on the South. The North was trying to protect its manufacturing industry by raising the tariff against foreign imports. The South had almost no manufacturing industry, but it exported cotton on a large scale, in exchange for the imports it badly needed. if the North continued to hold a majority in Congress, the import tariff might have been increased further still. That was one of the reasons why the South needed more slave-states, to try and keep something like a balance of power in Congress.


What was the ordinance of nullification?

In November 1832, South Carolina passed a resolution stating that certain tariffs imposed by the Federal government didn't apply to their state. This was a crisis because states getting to pick and choose what laws they wanted to follow threatened the whole fabric of government. Eventually, the crisis was averted when the unfair tariff law was changed, but also when armed forces were authorized for use in South Carolina. It was a good compromise, but unfortunately didn't solve the larger North-South conflicts that led to the Civil War.

Why were the southeners upset by the level of tariffs in 1828?

What did the southerners call the tariff of 1828?

Why did Calhoun and the South see the Tariff of 1828 as such an abomination and raise threats of nullification over it?

competition from Great Britain on the trade front was fierce and Congress was continually dealing with demands to raise tariffs in order to protect domestic companies. In August 1827, delegates to a convention in Harrisburg, PA signed a petition to force Congress to do something about the grievances of both farm and manufacturing interests by increasing tariffs. The northern states were generally in favor, but southerners weren't because the higher tariffs meant higher prices for the manufactured products they didn't produce themselves, while southerners also felt Great Britain and France would retaliate on items like cotton, forcing the region into poverty. The result was the Tariff of Abominations in 1828. Historian Robert Remini described it as a "ghastly, lopsided, unequal bill, every section of which showed marks of political preference and favoritism."
