Can you please explain to me what this means. This is what I think that it means. Jackson did not agree with states having any right to nullify a federal law. An ordiance was passed by the people of South Carolina because they felt that the Tariffs of 1828 and 1832 were unconsitutional. Any additional explaining about this would be great.

President Andrew Jackson issued a proclamation to the people of South Carolina that disputed a states right to nullify a federal law. Jackson's proclamation was written in response to an ordiance issued by a South Carolina convetion that declared that the tariff acts of 1828 and 1832 are unauthorized by the consitution of the US and violate the true meaning and intent thereof and are null, void, and no law, nor binding upon the state. Led by John C. Calhoun, the nullifers felt that the tariff acts of 1828 and 1832 favored Northern manufacturing interests at the expense of Southern famers.
