Title: The Man Who Wouldn't Be President
Description: Daniel Webster was a solid man. He could fight, and when he fought it was for peace. In the first half of the last century, he fought for compromise between the parties to the "irrepressible conflict" called the Civil War. But he could not stem the tide which brought it on. On another front he fought hard and won. His untiring effort and devotion to the cause of peace resulted in the famous Webster-Ashburton Treaty which wiped out many old causes of fiction between America and England. It laid the basis for the firm friendship and unity so vital today for the two nations who face a common enemy. Did Webster know the vital importance of his work? Listen to his plea before a hostile Senate! But when you find out why he wouldn't be president, then you'll know the full measure of his devotion to the nation.
