What was the purpose of the Judiciary Act of 1801?
This Act was passed in the last days
of Adams' presidency and created jobs for federal judges, mainly justices of the
peace but NO supreme court judges. They could only take that job if they
received a commission, a piece of paper saying that they had received the
appointment. The Secretary of State was responsible for delivering the
commissions but some were not delivered. (Adams also chose John Marshall
to be the 3rd Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.)
Who was William Marbury and why was he unhappy?
had been appointed a justice of the peace for Washington, D.C. but
did not receive his commission from the secretary of state, John Marshall. He
asked Jefferson and his secretary of state, James Madison, to deliver the
commission but they refused. He sued Madison in the case Marbury v Madison
Why do the judges need a commission?
The judges who received their commissions could not be fired but he refused to deliver
commissions to those who had not received them. He did not want more
Federalists in the judicial system serving life time appointments.
Calhoun wrote the South Carolina Exposition and Protest. He used the original Theory of Nullification but added 2 new provisions. Discuss those 2 new provisions.
He did add to the original theory by saying, the states had a way to make a nullifying state obey laws they considered unconstitutional. The Act could become an amendment to the constitution. However, he put in another out for these unhappy states. They could secede from the Union.
In 1832, Congress passed another tariff and South Carolina tested the Theory of Nullification. Explain what happened when South Carolina nullified the tariffs of 1828 and 1832.
Jackson could no longer collect tariffs from South Carolina.
Why did Jackson ask Congress to pass the Force Bill?
Jackson was angry. He had Congress pass the Force Bill which stated the president has the right to use the military to enforce all laws passed by Congress. He sent a customs ships to make the point that he would collect tariffs and would use the military. South Carolina and Calhoun were in trouble. No other Southern state had nullified the tariffs and all knew Jackson would use the military.
Everyone knew that Jackson would send in troops. How did Henry Clay find a way to settle the problem?
Henry Clay fashioned his 2nd Compromise. Congress would gradually lower the tariffs to the 1816 rates and South Carolina would call another special state convention and repeal the ordinance of nullification. And South Carolina did, but it also nullified the Force Bill.
