Section 1: Building a National Identity
  • The Era of Good Feelings

Section 1: Building a National Identity
  • Tariff of 1816
    • Passed for protection of American industry
      • Britain had well established factories
      • They were able to produce goods much cheaper than the U.S.
        • This allowed them to fill the market and drive U.S. manufacturers out of business
    • Protective tariff was popular in the North
      • This is where the most manufacturing was
    • Very unpopular in the South
      • Made southerners pay more for goods
        • Calhoun – tariffs made northern manufacturers rich at the expense of the south
section 1 building a national identity5
Section 1: Building a National Identity
  • Clay’s American System
    • Proposed high tariffs and a federal program of public works
      • Believed that high tariffs helped all areas of the country
        • Wealth of manufacturers from tariffs would allow them purchase more products from western and southern farmers
      • The Tariff would provide revenue for the Government
        • Which could put the money to good use like…
      • Build up the infrastructure
        • Roads, bridges, canals in the south and the west
    • Clay’s plan was never fully implemented
      • Both Madison and Monroe refused to support some of the projects
      • Southerners were convinced that Tariffs would not help the south in the long run

    • Gibbons v. Ogden (1824)
      • Supported Federal power
        • Ruled that NY could not give a steamboat company a monopoly to carry passengers on the Hudson River
        • Court said that the boat includes stops in NJ as well
          • This means it is INTERSTATE commerce
          • Trade between more than 1 state – and is regulated by Congress
