Did You Know?

Daniel Webster speaking in the Senate chamber.

Daniel Webster was once rebuffed in his effort to speak at Faneuil Hall. His support of The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 earned for him the enmity of New England's abolitionists, and a worry that if he were allowed to speak, his appearance might spark a riot. He later spoke without incident.
