Biography | show moreshow less
Edward Everett (1794-1865) represented Massachusetts as a Whig in the House of Representatives (1825-1835) and in the U.S. Senate (1853-1854). He was Governor of Massachusetts (1836-1840), U. S. Minister to Great Britain (1841-1845), President of Harvard (1846-1849), President Millard Fillmore's Secretary of State (1852-1853) and the Constitution Union Party candidate for Vice President (with John Bell) in 1860, winning 39 electoral votes. In 1863, Everett shared the platform with President Lincoln at Gettysburg. Ordained a Unitarian Minister, Edward Everett was one of America's greatest orators. On Nov. 19, 1863, he was the keynote speaker at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, where he delivered a two-hour oration. Everett's words, however, were eclipsed at the time and ever since by the brief closing remarks of President Lincoln's famous "Gettysburg Address." A humbled Everett remarked to the President afterward, "I should be glad if I could flatter myself that I came as near to the central idea of the occasion in two hours as you did in two minutes."
