Webster developed a passion for learning and reading at a young age and his family made great sacrifices to give him a good education. At the age of 15 he went to Dartmouth
Academy and studied law. He
graduated Dartmouth in 1801. After studying law in Boston, Daniel Webster started his first job as a lawyer in the city of Portsmouth, NH. As a lawyer, Webster acchieved great financial success and gained wide popularity as one of the best lawyers in New England. Before long, Webster became increasingly involved in politics. He claimed to be a federalist and often fought for New England's shipping interestes. Later in his life, Webster also became a major leader in the Whig Party Webster was elected to the US House of Representatives in 1812 and later was also elected to the US Senate in 1822.

After the four-year term, Webster went back to the senate for another another six years before being asked again to serve as Secretary of State under President Fillmore, in 1850. He served under President Fillmore for two years until his death on October 24, 1852.

In 1843, as secretary of state under William Henry Harrison and John Tyler, Webster negotiated the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, which has become known as his greatest diplomatic achievement.
From 1845 to 1850, Webster served again in the Senate where he worked on behalf of the Compromise of 1850.

He said that state governments should "interpose" to protect their citizens from the national government. During his last years in the Senate, Webster opposed adding Texas to the Union, and also opposed the war with Mexico. In a "Union-saving" speech, Webster favored the Compromise of 1850, and helped get it passed Under Tyler, Webster negotiated the Webster-Ashburton Treaty which settled Maine's boundary dispute and helped avoid a war with Britain.
