Union and States' Rights Gazette | History of SC Slide Collection

The front page of the short-lived "Union and States' Rights Gazette" illustrates the complexity of South Carolina politics even though many outsiders thought the state unified behind opposition to the tariff and in support of Nullification and disunion. The editor speaks out against the nullifiers in a strong pro-Union argument in the October 18, 1831, issue, arguing that the rights of the states were protected best in the shelter of the union.
