Daniel Webster (1782-1852) was one of the United States' most influential and eloquent statesmen of the period before the Civil War. He served in the House and Senate for a total of nineteen years, and as Secretary of State for three presidents. Henry Clay (1777-1852) was a part of the "Great Triumvirate" of Senators along with Daniel Webster and John C. Calhoun, who represented the nation's sometimes divergent interests in Congress, brokering compromises and enacting laws that would mark their generation and those to come. He also served as Secretary of State under John Quincy Adams.
