Nullification Crisis (20h 20min, may 28, 1828 y – 15h 22min, mar 15, 1833 y)
A high protective tariff was signed into law by the U.S government. South Carolina specifically John C. Calhoun strongly disagreed with the high tariffs and felt that they targeted the South unfairly . South Carolina nullified the federal law, calling it unconstutional until a force bill was threatened which would bring the national army into the state to make sure the law was followed. A compromise took place. South Carolina would pay the tax if the U.S government lowered the tax. The U.S government would not send troops if South Carolina agreed to pay this lower tax.
