Printed name and signature underneath the engraving. Henry Clay(1777-1852)wasa United States politician born in Hanover County, Virginia. He's considered one of the best U.S. Congressmen of all time. After two-year terms in the United States Senate (1806-1807) and the Kentucky House of Representatives (1808-1809), Clay went on to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives intermittently from 1811 to 1825. His time in the House included three separate stints as Speaker (1811-1814), (1815-1820), and (1823-1825). This position made him one of the most powerful men in Washington D.C. Along with Daniel Webster and John C. Calhoun, Clay negotiated major legislation that prevented violence on the slavery issue. These agreements include the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850. When Clay endorsed John Quincy Adams for the Oval Office and Adams won in a heated race against Andrew Jackson, Clay was rewarded with the Secretary of State position in the new President's Cabinet. Jackson and Clay became fierce rivals; the two faced off in the 1832 Presidential election that Jackson won handily. Henry Clay was a force in United States politics for nearly 50 years, passing away in 1952 while still serving as a United States Senator. Lightly toned around edges. Unsigned. Otherwise, fine condition.
