U.S. History 1492-1877 5: The Tariff of 1828
Today we'll learn about how the federal government's ties to certain states just might tear if too many taxes are put into place. The Tariff of 1828 came pretty close to causing an all-out brawl in South Carolina.
The Iliad, most of our knowledge of their trade practices come through the
discovery of archaeological artifacts. and from the diary of some guy named Privyssyeus.
we totally disregarded that keep out warning on the cover. okay
let's look at each possible entry see what's shakin. while linen cloth and dyes
were in high demand in Greece, those items were mostly imported due to low [man smiles sitting behind a stack of towels and a plate of dye]
supply of materials and manufacturing capabilities. imported but not
important. not for us anyway so we get rid of a. how that option b? well when it
came to raising food such as wheat and cattle demand also outstripped supply.
wheat doesn't grow well in Greece's climate and rocky soil and there isn't a
lot of grassland available for grazing. rules which led to those commodities
being largely imported as well. next up is d bronze weapon and tools well Greeks
use them Greeks love them but Greeks didn't make. them and for the most part.
again natural resource wise bronze wasn't exactly growing on trees in the
Greek homeland. huh? that leaves us with option C olive oil and wine. yeah baby.
though it was hard to raise cotton wheat and cattle in Greece but grapes and
olives totally grow well there. also the ancient Greeks were great pottery
makers and pots are perfect containers for exporting olive oil and wine to [clay pot pictured]
their neighbors. many Greek shipwrecks containing thousands of pottery
containers known as amphora have been discovered with some of the olive oil
and wine still in them proving they were being exported to other countries. also
many shipwrecks from neighboring countries have been discovered with
empty amphora indicating they were heading back to Greece.
Apparently these guys had unlimited refills. [Jack sparrow stands on a beach]
