All, keep in mind the tarriff at the time of the CW worked out to about $2 a year...

As an example of the effect of the tarriff on the average poor to middle class southern farmer. What exactly was he paying tarrifs on? A good hard look at what was directly effected by the tarriff finds alot that had little or nothing to do w/ the farmer.

Tools? The average farmer North & South made many of his own tools w/ varying degrees of quality but the reality is that if a man needed a tool he made it himself.

Furniture? Once again he made much of it himself to varying degrees of quality & craftmanship.

In short when discussing the tarriff it is important to understand who it bothered, how & why. The South was not paying a dispraportionate amount.
