Famous utterance of the 19th century: "Liberty and Union, now and for ever, one and inseparable!"



Item # 651082

March 6, 1830

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, March 6, 1830  Daniel Webster was a leading American statesman during the nation's antebellum period. Webster's desire to see the Union preserved and conflict averted led him to search out compromises designed to stave off the sectionalism that threatened war between the North and South.
Webster's efforts to steer the nation away from civil war ultimately proved futile.
On January 26, Webster gave a reply to Hayne, in which Webster openly attacked Nullification, negatively contrasted South Carolina's response to the tariff with that of his native New England's response to the Embargo of 1807, rebutted Hayne's personal attacks against him, and famously concluded in defiance of nullification (which was later embodied in John C. Calhoun's declaration of "The Union; second to our liberty most dear!"), "Liberty and Union, now and for ever, one and inseparable!" (credit Wikipedia)
It is this famous speech--which takes over 20 pages of this 24 page issue--included here in its entirety--he ended with the famous line: "...and in every wind under the whole heavens that other sentiment, dear to every true American heart--liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable!" (photos show for the beginning & ending of this lengthy Webster speech).
Complete in 24 pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, scattered foxing, very good condition.

As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
