In US antebellum political history Nationalism and Compact Theory were at two ends of line of thought regarding the place of States in the Constitutional Union. Nationalism minimized the sovereignty of States while Compact Theory Maximized States sovereignty.

Nationalism seems to have been favored by commercial interest because a strong federal government facilitated commerce while compact theory seems to have been favored by slave holders because of the threat that a strong federal government might outlaw slavery much like far way London and Paris outlawed French and English slavery in their colonies.
