Andrew Jackson Nullification Crisis Message
South Carolina Nullification Proclamation and the Nullification Crisis
WASHINGTON, January 22, 1833. To the Senate
Having received on yesterday certified copies of the acts passed by the State
of South Carolina to carry into effect her ordinance of nullification, which were referred to in my message of the 16th instant to Congress,
I now transmit them.
As but one copy of these acts was sent to me, I am prevented from communicating
them by a joint message to the two Houses of Congress.
