About this Item

Washington: Gales & Seaton, 96pp. Dbd., removed from a sammelband. Foxing. Good. This is the second edition, the issue without the "Ah Sir" passage on the final page. Webster's famous oration, one of the great American political speeches of the nineteenth century, in which he propounded his vision of the insolubility of the federal union. Prompted by South Carolina's recently propounded "nullification" theory, which argued that the individual states had the right to resist federal authority and to secede from the Union if the federal government exerted its authority, Webster defended the authority of the federal government and the supremacy of the Constitution, forecasting that civil war would be the ultimate result of the implementation of nullification theories. Webster famously proclaimed "liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable!" Abraham Lincoln (quoted in David Herbert Donald's biography, LINCOLN, p.270), called it "the very best speech that was ever delivered." "Most famous American oration of the nineteenth century, presenting the doctrine of a Union paramount and indissoluble." Webster delivered his address on January 26, and it was then printed in Gales's NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, followed by a seventy-six page edition printed from that same setting of type.
