Daniel Webster was born on January 18, 1782, and was the ninth of ten children. His father, Ebenezer Webster, was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. His father taught him about the importance of the Union between the states, telling young Daniel that nothing was as important as preserving the Union. Daniel was able to go to college, and become a successful lawyer, becoming so famous that many people began to tell him that he should run for office.
