How did the colony of South Carolina make money?
They had plantations that grew indigo, rice, and tobacco. The Southern Colonies relied on agriculture.
The Spanish were making a lot of money with their colonies so England wanted to make money too. Sir Walter Raleigh sent people to Roanoke to start a colony but the people disappeared. Then England sent a colony to Jamestown, Virginia and that was successful. Eventually more English people came to the New World and formed colonies in Carolina. The Carolinas later separated into North Carolina and South Carolina.
South Carolina disliked the fact that they would have to bear the problems of the government. The tariffs were used to raise money for the government. The tariff was an abomination amongst the people whom lived there. They believed that Jackson singled South Carolina out just to make John C. Calhoun a stronger Presidential candidate.
