Daniel Webster was born in Salisbury, N.H., 18 January, 1785. Graduating from Dartmouth in the class of 1801, he at once began the study of law in Salisbury, and in 1804 entered the office of the Hon. Christopher Gore, of Boston. He practiced a few years in New Hampshire, until elected to the House of Representatives in the National Congress by his native state. He withdrew from political life at the close of his second term and removed to Boston in 1816. Six years later he was again sent to Congress as a Representative from Massachusetts and in 1828 was chosen Senator, and served until he became Secretary of State under Fillmore in 1850.
