Daniel Webster (January 18, 1782 October 24, 1852) was a United States Senator and Secretary of State. Famed for his ability as an orator, Webster was one of the most important figures in the Second Party System from the 1820s to the 1850s. Like Henry Clay, he had a predisposition to finding compromises marked by a passionate patriotic devotion to the Union.
