Synopsis

Biographical profile of Daniel Webster, a great statesmen, lawyer and public speaker. As an attorney, Daniel Webster represented some America's greatest tycoons and served as legal counsel in several cases that established important constitutional precedents that confirmed the authority of the Federal government. He also served as Secretary of State under several administrations and as U.S. Senator. He was part of the "Great Triumvirate," together with Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun. A great orator who could keep audiences, fellow senators, juries and judges spellbound for hours, Webster delivered many famous orations, but his "Reply to Hayne" in 1830 is generally regarded as "the most eloquent speech ever delivered in Congress." Award-winning author and syndicated columnist Daniel Alef, who has written more than 300 biographical profiles of America's greatest tycoons, brings out the story of Webster and his remarkable life of ups, downs and achievements.
