Since 1815, however, the growth of “national republicanism” had seen many Democratic Republicans supporting active federal policies that presumed a continuing future for the common interest of the Union. President Jackson offered a resolution of this ambiguity when, in the face of South Carolina’s challenge to federal authority, he made it clear that the reduction of central government was not meant to cast doubt on the Union’s perpetuity. 30 16 • Donald Ratcliffe The Centrality of Federal Power State governments exercised considerable power, especially in the last decades before the Civil War, and had direct influence on the everyday lives of their citizens.
In practice, the hostility between the South and New England was mitigated by the divisions within the Middle Atlantic states which gave the South the opportunity to find allies in the North. When, in the war crisis with France in 1798–99, the Federalists passed measures that the Democratic Republicans thought unconstitutional, the legislatures of Kentucky and Virginia adopted condemnatory resolutions secretly drafted by Jefferson and Madison. Jefferson initially included in his draft the claim that a state government could nullify the operation of unconstitutional laws within its limits and so obstruct the operation of federal government, but he was persuaded to drop this assertion partly because it would lose the Democratic Republicans support in Pennsylvania and New York.
The basic institutions—the bank (until its charter expired in 1811), the national debt, the army and navy—were all preserved, if in more modest form. Though a strict constructionist, President Jefferson proved perfectly willing, in national emergencies, to exercise powers beyond the strict letter of the Constitution— as over the Louisiana Purchase, the naval campaign against the Barbary corsairs, and the Burr conspiracy. 25 In effect, the diplomatic, maritime, and economic difficulties that the United States faced during the Napoleonic Wars in Europe were converting many Democratic Republicans to a more nationalist outlook.
