Import tariffs were overwhelmingly collected at Northern, not Southern, ports. New York alone accounted for more than half of all the import tariffs collected, and over 90% were collected at Northern ports.

How did this effect West Virginia, Georgia or Tennessee? Only in that the cost of the tariff was passed onto the end consumer. How this bothered SC more than say Iowa or Wisconsin I don't know.
