John C. Calhoun was elected to the U.S Congress and soon became one of its leaders. He supported the need for a strong central government and also spoke out against sectionalism. But his mind set soon changed. He became a champion of state's rights. This caused Jackson and Calhoun to conflict over the issue of state's rights. The issue of internal improvements was one of the issues that pulled sections apart. The Northeast and West wanted tariff's to back up the government's spending. However, the South hated this tariff and called it the Tariff of Abomination. The tariff hit the South Carolinas especially hard because their economy wasn't in the best shape. Calhoun understood the Carolina's farmers because he was once one himself. He wanted to find a way to keep South Carolina from leaving the Union. His solution was the doctrine of nullification. As a state, South Carolina had the right to nullify a law that they find unconstitutional. This then led to the Webster-Hayne debate, which was over the doctrine of nullification. Although Jackson opposed the doctrine, he didn't want to drive the South out of the Union. The tariff was reduced its rate, but it was still too high. Because of this, the South threatened secession from the Union if the federal government tried to collect tariffs. This enraged Jackson and he made it clear that he would use force to see that Federal Laws were obeyed and the Union was preserved.

Were there sectional differences in the Second Great Awakening in the US?

The Second Great Awakening in antebellum America had sectional differences. Although a common negative thread lay in bigotry and self righteousness, adherents to it were somewhat different in the North and the South. In the North the movement veered towards a general reform of society as a necessary prelude to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Evangelical Protestantism of the South was more concerned with individual conversion. The Southern view was that the mixture of religion and politics in the North was fraught with danger.Another sectional difference was that the phobia against Catholicism and immigration in the North was much less a factor in the Southern "Awakening".

Sectional differences developed in the US largely because?

economic conditions and interests in each region varied Going back as far as the colonial era the northern and southern regions of America had differed greatly economically. The northern states were based mostly in manufacturing, trade and some agricultural production, while the southern states were vastly agricultural. These early differences also help account for the rapid growth of slavery (in agriculture) in the south and its low incidence in the northern regions. These sectional and economic differences continued to divide the nation and helped contribute to the eruption of the Civil War in 1861.
