For this essay, you will need to read The Kentucky Resolutions and South Carolina Exposition and Protest.
In your essay, you should:
Write an introduction outlining the basic argument of state powers versus national powers. You may want to turn to the Constitution itself to find material.
Write a brief summary of why each document was written. What is the historical context of the documents? You will probably want a paragraph for each document.
Write a paragraph of what the two documents have in common.
Write a paragraph of what the difference in the two documents is. How does the South Carolina Exposition and Protest differ in its argument from the Kentucky Resolution?
Write a conclusion that answers whether or not a state should have the ability to nullify a national law, and if so, under what circumstances? If not, why not? This last paragraph will be your opinion, but remember do not use I in any form. State your opinion as if it were fact.
