This is John C. Calhoun of South Carolina. I chose this portrait of him because he was an believer in slavery and a famous leader in the South. During the time of the protective tariff and the nullification crisis, he wrote "South Carolina Exposition and Protest" anonymously. This threatened the unity of the the states. He was also the Vice President until 1832 when he resigned because of the tariffs the government kept passing. He later became a great voice in the Senate.
