Reprints the famous debate between Webster (“most famous American oration of the nineteenth century” — Howes) and Hayne over protective tariffs, in which issues of wide-ranging significance (States’ rights, slavery, the Constitution, etc.), were debated with the kind forensic brilliance rarely seen in the land of Dan Quayle. Reprinted here with Webster’s equally famous oration supporting the Compromise of 1850, which won the day for the Compromise, but lost Webster the support of his abolitionist constituents.
