Daniel Webster

One of the greatest orators in American history, Daniel Webster of Massachusetts was one of the leading members of the U.S. Senate during the years preceding the Civil War. Webster also served as a member of the House of Representatives from New Hampshire. Webster, along with Henry Clay of Kentucky and John C. Calhoun of South Carolina, was a member of the Senate’s Great Triumvirate. He opposed the Doctrine of Nullification, a predecessor to secession, and served as secretary of state under three presidents. Webster supported the Compromise of 1850 sponsored by senators Henry Clay and Stephen Douglas. He died in 1852 at the age of 70.
