Force Bill (1833) On January 19, 1833, President Andrew Jackson requested Congress to grant him the authority to use the military to enforce tariff laws in any region of the United States. Jackson's request came after South Carolina had declared the hated Tariff of 1828 (also known as the Tariff of Abominations) null and void in November 1832. #history
