Georgia Division - Morrill Tariff
2 of 12 videos from the
Georgia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans
 

The Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans has created 12 one minute videos. This video is on the Morrill Tariff - a massive increase in federal government taxation.

 

Video Script:

The Morrill Tariff

Another major cause of the War Between the States of which you've probably never heard was the Morrill (pronounced "more ill," Heidi ) Tariff Act passed in 1859 which increased tariffs on the South from 15 percent to nearly 50 percent. Lincoln's first inaugural address stated his resolve in collecting these taxes no matter what.

He said, "The power confided in me will be used to hold, occupy, and possess the property, and places belonging to the government, and to collect the duties and imposts (tariffs, in other words), but beyond what way may be necessary for these objects, there will be no invasion - no using force against or among the people anywhere."

Ultimately, he was willing to sacrifice 620,000 American lives with his illegal invasion of the Southern states who had legally seceded... and all this just to keep money pouring into Washington, DC.

These were the grounds that sparked the first meeting for Secession 150 years ago.
