Charleston Research Fellow Brian Neumann, currently a PhD candidate in history at the University of Virginia, will present on his research about the Nulli cation Crisis, in which South Carolina tried to void federal tariffs. The crisis coincided with the Second Great Awakening, and it became a struggle over faith and freedom, testing South Carolinians’ belief in the Union’s providential purpose. Neumann's research in Charleston will focus on understanding the spiritual dimensions of this event, including the reactions of the State’s important Jewish community.
