Promote the American System

By: Emma Eells

Why choose the American System?

Protective Tariffs

The rise of protective tariffs shows control and the will power of our government. The government put a 20-25% tax on all imported goods to increase manufacturing in the states.

National Bank

This idea of a national bank was brought to my attention by Alexander Hamilton. This will increase nationalism and keep a constant currency throughout all the states. This will create a trust between all citizens and the new government. They also want to create a development in home markets.

Roads and Canals

The government decided to create a road and canal system that spread across to the west. This will spread out the imports and exports of the states. Through building of canals this increases the idea of nationalism. Don't let this increase sectionalism! Currently the Erie Canal is under construction to increase manufacturing from the Great Lakes to New York.
