In 1957 the United States Senate named Daniel Webster as one of its five most outstanding members. He served there before the Civil War and attempted to resolve the differences between the North and the South though compromise.
The Daniel Webster Memorial is interesting, in part, because it has two dioramas (is solid bronze sculpture can be called a diorama), one on the front of the monument and the other on the back.
Daniel Webster was born in Salisbury, New Hampshire on January 18, 1782 and died at Marshfield, Massachusetts on October 24, 1852.
The following things are carved into the stone of the monument:
