mcculloch v maryland 1819
McCulloch v. Maryland (1819)
  • State banks argue that the United States does not have the power to create and run a national bank because it is not addressed in the Constitution
  • Court ruled that it was allowed under the “necessary and proper clause”
  • “Necessary and proper clause” allows government to do what it feels is necessary for the best interest of the nation
gibbons v ogden 1824
Gibbons v. Ogden (1824)

  • He has taken the mantle of defender of the “Southern way of life”

John C Calhoun

the nullification crisis
The Nullification Crisis
  • South Carolina is suffering from an economic depression that hurts cotton planters
  • South Carolina is also paying what it believes are high tariffs for imported goods
  • In 1828, Congress will raise the tariff rates higher. South Carolinians name it the “Tariff of Abominations”
calhoun s theory of nullification
Calhoun’s Theory of Nullification
  • Calhoun argued that states had the right to to nullify any federal law that exceeded the powers granted in the Constitution
  • Nullify means that a state can refuse to obey--an act of Congress it believes is unconstitutional
  • If Congress attempted to pass the law again then states had the right to secede from the union.
