This is a 19-slide power point presentation that explains how the name is a misnomer. The controversy over the tariff and how sectionalism began to develop during the late 1810s and early 1820s is explained and examined. The emergence of the western farmers and the impact they had on the nation’s changing economy is also examined. The growing concern over slavery is also looked at through an analysis of the Missouri Compromise. There are a number of slides discussing the Monroe Doctrine and how the US began to be a nation to be reckoned with in the international community. Coupled with this are slides on the growth of the US into Oregon and Florida. The presentation also analyzes the role and impact the Supreme Court had on our government through important court decisions. The presentation is chalked full of maps, paintings, illustrations and portraits to emphasize the material.
