Tyler was a strong proponent of states’ rights, causing more friction between north and south. He signed the Log Cabin Bill which gave settlers the right to claim land before it was for sale and then buy it later for $1.25 an acre. This helped westward expansion. He signed a tariff bill that protected northern manufacturers. The Webster-Ashburton Treaty helped end a border dispute with the Canadian colonies along the Maine border. His favorite accomplishment was the 1845 annexation of Texas. During his term, Florida was admitted as the 27th state.
