Question: 1038

1. The Whigs were

A. a Northern party.
B. a Southern party.
C. a pro-Bank party.
D. a pro-nullification party.
E. a pro-Indian removal party.

Correct Answer: C


The Whigs formed out of the fight over the Bank, which they supported along with internal improvements. The Whigs and the Democrats were both North and South parties, so nullification does not apply. Indian Removal favored those wanting land in the West, something the Whigs were opposed to, but most congressmen favored it.
