Calhoun represented the foremost statesmen of their age. In the decades preceding the Civil War, they dominated American congressional politics as no other figures have. Now Merrill D. Peterson, one of our most gifted historians, brilliantly re-creates the lives and times of these great men in this monumental collective biography. Peterson brings to life the great events in which the Triumvirate figured so prominently, including the debates on Clay's American System, the Missouri Compromise, the Webster-Hayne debate, the Bank War, the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, the annexation of Texas, and the Compromise of 1850. At once a sweeping narrative and a penetrating study of non-presidential leadership, this book offers an indelible picture of this conservative era in which statesmen viewed the preservation of the legacy of free government inherited from the Founding Fathers as their principal mission. In fascinating detail, Peterson demonstrates how precisely Webster, Clay, and Calhoun exemplify three facets of this national mind." --from book description,, ClementHenry Clay and the art of American politicsBiography17581ocn023140589book19910.27Remini, Robert VHenry Clay : statesman for the UnionBiographyAmong nineteenth-century Americans, few commanded the reverence and respect accorded to Henry Clay of Kentucky. As orator and as Speaker of the House for longer than any man in the century, he wielded great power, a compelling presence in Congress who helped preserve the Union in the antebellum period. Remini portrays both the statesman and the private man, a man whose family life was painfully torn and who burned with ambition for the office he could not reach, the presidency.--From publisher description+-+9335688485171350ocn003323890book18870.53Schurz, CarlLife of Henry ClayBiography+-+2766348905324169358ocn001132193book18420.76Clay, HenryThe life and speeches of Henry ClayHistoryBiographySources13896ocn000424654book19370.37Van Deusen, Glyndon GThe life of Henry ClayBiography+-+926257868532413576ocn326531524book20100.23Heidler, David StephenHenry Clay : the essential AmericanBiographySpeaker of the House, senator, secretary of state, five-time presidential candidate, and idol to the young Abraham Lincoln, Henry Clay is captured in full in this rich and sweeping biography that vividly portrays all the drama of his times+-+604324763512657ocn753969024com20110.37Apple, LindseyThe family legacy of Henry Clay in the shadow of a Kentucky patriarchBiographyKnown as the Great Compromiser, Henry Clay earned his title by addressing sectional tensions over slavery and forestalling civil war in the United States. Today he is still regarded as one of the most important political figures in American history. As Speaker of the House of Representatives and secretary of state, Clay left an indelible mark on American politics at a time when the country's solidarity was threatened by inner turmoil, and scholars have thoroughly chronicled his political achievements.
