Description

One of twelve volumes in the True Stories of Great Americans series published by Instructor Publishing Co. in Dansville, N.Y., Daniel Webster: A Character Sketch appeared in 1899, less than fifty years after its subject’s death. The book chronicles the life of Daniel Webster from his humble beginnings in a pioneer family through the arc of his remarkable career: from young public school teacher, to lawyer who argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, to U.S Congressman, and finally to Secretary of State for three U.S. presidents. Also included are daguerreotype images of Webster and other public figures of his time, facsimiles of speeches in his own handwriting, and a brief chronology of the major events of his life.
