Miss Walker the Tarriffs are a smoke screen when some can claim the South paid 70% of them when any research at all shows this to be wrong.

Then the claim that they saw their $ going right into the pockets of rich industrialists... I'm sorry but that is pure sensationalism intended to make the North evil w/ South poor put upon innocents argument.

The tariffs were enforced & collected at the ports, on imports; similar to the Buy American idea going around a few years back. The imports struck were not on the things the average southerner, or northerner for that matter, bought.
