I was born for a storm, and a calm does not suit me.
Does a state have the right to ignore the laws of the federal government? Well, not today. But in the early days of the United States there was an ongoing tension between the states and the federal government in Washington, D.C. By the end of Andrew Jackson's first term, it was clear that the president was going to assert the government's ultimate authority over the states. Jackson's direct involvement in the nullification crisis in South Carolina puts this issue to rest - at least until the Civil War. You are off again, this time to figure out what nullification is and identify the crisis in South Carolina.
First, report on the issues that brought about the discussion of nullification. Next, explain what might have happened to the United States had the nullification movement been successful.
