Daniel Webster: The Historical Figure

In honor of patriotism and other things related to the like, we are learning about a man named Daniel Webster. Daniel Webster is a historical figure mostly known for his occupation as a statesman.

Some other things we have learned/researched about Daniel Webster are the following:

+He was born on January 7th, 1782 (in Salisbury, New Hampshire) and died on October 23rd, 1852 (in  Marshfield, Massachusetts.)

+Was appointed the United States Secretary of States by/under three presidents.

+Served in the House of Representatives for 10 years (representing New Hampshire) and was in the Senate for 19 years (representing Massachusetts.

We have also recently started doing some work on a short story that has him in it called "The Devil and Daniel Webster."
