Yes. John C. Calhoun supported states’ rights. Southern states felt the federal tariffs were unfair and South Carolina passed the Nullification Act. Calhoun, from South Carolina, supported nullification. Jackson responded with the Force Act and the south threatened to succeed. Jackson told Calhoun “If you succeed from my nation, I will succeed your head from the rest of your body.” Later, when asked about regrets, Jackson stated that he regreted not hanging Calhoun. Of course, we do not know how serious this threat was and if he would have tried to go through with it.
