Tom Woods gives a thorough review of the historical precedence of nullification in countering federal laws and initiatives which the states deemed to be overstepping the bounds set forth to limit it in the U.S. Constitution.
Notably, he counters the often used argument that nullification was used by the southern states to promote the continuance of slavery. In actuality, nullification was used most often to counter the federal governments laws which promoted it, as well as laws requiring conscription, and also utilizing states militias as a federal force.
