Maryland (1819): sided with the national government making it clear that national interests were to be put above state interests Gibbons v. Ogden (1824): involved steamboat licenses; Ogden had a NY state license to operate, Gibbons had a national license to operate; court favored Gibbons, thus declaring national law superior to state law

Jackson and supporters called it the corrupt bargain

Democratic Party is formed by Jackson and his supporters Popular war hero, seen as a man of the people National Republican Party is formed by Adams and his supporters Not popular, administration weakened by scandal and relentless criticism Appeared to be out of touch with the people Most voting restrictions in many states, like property ownership, were being lifted poor people could now vote these are Jacksons strongest supporters Jacksonian Democracy ~ political power exercised by ordinary Americans One of his first acts in office, replaced many officials with his supporters (actually only 1 in 10 replaced) Rewarding supporters in this way spoils system

interference with international trade Drove a wedge between Jackson and VP, John C. Calhoun (a southerner) Tariff of 1828 is commonly referred to as the Tariff of Abominations Calhoun argues the idea that a state could nullify any law passed by Congress they believed violated the Constitution or not in the best interest of states States Rights Continues Hayne-Webster Debate Most famous debate in Senate history Robert Hayne of SC Federal government is an agreement among states Nullification gave states a lawful way to protest

Daniel federalWebster legislation of MA US is one nation, not an agreement of states Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable! Nullification Crisis Congress passed another tariff in 1832 SC declared the tariff null and void and threatened to secede (withdraw) from the Union if govt tried to enforce

Began with textiles in Great Britain The North Industrializes Samuel Slater violated British law and brought knowledge of industrial machines to America He and Moses Brown built a water-powered spinning mill 1st successful textile mill Lowell, Massachusetts Became center of textile production Town named after Francis Lowell, wealthy Boston textile merchant Textile firms opened mills and turned profits quickly (40 mills and 10,000 looms) Majority of workers were young women, recruited from local farms, known as Lowell girls Lives were strictly regulated by the ringing of bells

The Revolution Spreads Slowly spread from textile industry to others The 1830s brings the steam engine, better and more widely available, helped make industry grow fast Industrialization led to urbanization People left farms and moved into cities to work in mills and factories The North changed from small towns and farms and into large cities and

factories Transportation Roads and Canals National Road constructed (1811-1841) Stretched 800 miles MD to IL Network of roads to connect the US, promoting travel and trade Erie Canal (1825) 363 mile-long connecting the Great Lakes with the Hudson River and the Atlantic Ocean Quick and economical way to transport goods

to the West and farm products to the East The Steamboat Its success led to general decline in roads and brought an end to the canal craze1st successful service run by Robert Fulton 1807 he began operating regular passenger service on the Hudson River others began to build and operate The Railroad 1st run in US in 1830, only 23 miles of track at the time By 1840 more than 3,000 miles of track Speed, power, reliability and carrying

capacity made it the preferred means of travel and transport Its success led to general decline in roads and brought an end to the canal craze Communication Printing Press Telegraph Patented by Samuel F.B. Steam-powered printing Morse in 1840 presses introduced in Germany Device to send messages Soon enabled US publishers

using electricity through wires to print material much faster and in greater volumes Communication is instantaneous Postal Service Other industries are quick to Mail delivery was faster and use it to their advantage more available due to steamboats and the railroads Wires were soon to crisscross 1800: fewer than 1,000 post the nation offices 1840: more than 12,000 CHAPTER 7

SECTION 4: THE LAND OF COTTON Main Idea: During the early 1800s, the South developed an economy based on agriculture.

Cotton = get rich quick Cotton was US largest and most valuable export from 1807 until close to the end of the 1800s The Spread of Slavery Farming cotton is labor intensive Land prepared, seeds planted, growing plants tended to, crop picked, cleaned and baled First farms were small run by families Wealthier planters bought huge plots of land and used enslaved African Americans Growth of cotton farming directly led to demand for enslaved African Americans 1810: 1 million; 1840: 2.5 million (1/3 of southern population) Most southerners were not slaveholders

Approximately of the white families in the south owned slaves Slave labor = more cotton to grow = more money to make (powerful economic incentive) North vs. South North South Manufacturing and trade Urbanization, cities grew Businesses seized new technology in pursuit of efficiency and growth View change as progress Exposed to many different people

Slavery viewed as evil Agriculture Rural No need for labor-saving devices when there is ample enslaved people to do work Hold higher value in tradition Less diverse Slavery is viewed (by most white people) as vital to economy, natural situation, and practice sanctioned by Christian religion Chapter 7 Review Write the Questions and
