About this title
Among 19th century Americans, few were as revered and respected as Henry Clay of Kentucky. He was a major player in the dramatic events of the new nation, wielding awesome power in Congress through his wit, biting satire, and, above all, his golden voice. His magnificent proposal resulted in the famous compromise of 1850, saving the union. Photographs.From the Back Cover:
Among nineteenth-century Americans, few commanded the reverence and respect accorded to Henry Clay of Kentucky. As orator and as Speaker of the House for longer than any man in the century, he wielded great power, a compelling presence in Congress who helped preserve the Union in the antebellum period. Remini portrays both the statesman and the private man, a man whose family life was painfully torn and who burned with ambition for the office he could not reach, the presidency.
