On This Day in History January 18, 1782: Legendary figure in American politics during the early to mid 19th century, Daniel Webster (January 18, 1782 - Oct 24, 1852) was born in Salisbury (Now Franklin), New Hampshire.
Webster’s resume is a laundry list of positions held. He was a lawyer who served two terms in the United States House of Representatives as a representative of New Hampshire (March 4, 1813 – March 3, 1817) and later Massachusetts (March 4, 1823 – May 30, 1827.) Webster served as United Senator Massachusetts from June 8, 1827 – February 22, 1841.
President William Henry Harrison selected Webster to be his Secretary of State in 1841 and remained as Secretary of State under Harrison’s successor John Tyler through 1843. Webster would become Secretary of State again, this time under Millard Fillmore from July 23, 1850 – October 24, 1852. In doing so, Webster would be the first of two (along with James G. Blaine) to serve as Secretary of State under three presidents.
Webster also sought the presidential nomination in 1836, 1840 and 1852 as the Whig Party candidate.
