Who Tariff of Abominations?
The Congress passed the bill for the Tariff. The southerners later called it the tariff of abominations, because it was a very high tariff.
How might the sectional issues involved in the dispute over the Tariff of Abominations lead to the future problems between Northerns and Southerns?
The Tariff of Abominations is a derisive term used by southerners to describe the Tariff of 1828. The Tariff of 1828 was a protective tariff that was passed to help northern industries. Some businesses were being shut down due to an inability to compete with lower priced imported goods. The Tariff made the South have to pay more for imported goods and impacted cotton prices due to the reductions in exports from Britain.
