Daniel Webster. Webster served as a Senator during the Antebellum period and is most well known for his part in the 1830 Webster-Hayne debates, which centered around the Nullification Crisis. Webster, hoping to preserve the Union while also questioning the premise of nullification, famously remarked "liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable." Public domain.
