1893. Contains two orations by Webster. The first commemorates the
50th anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill. Webster paints a
vivid verbal picture of the Battle. He extolls the virtues of
representative government, stating America's role as an example to
the world and reminds the audience of the responsibility that is
being handed down to them by the remaining few of the Revolution.
Secondly, Webster speaks at the momentous occasion of the funeral
of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, both of whom died on the 50th
anniversary of the Union. Webster praises Jefferson and the
Declaration. He then offers an analysis of Adams, including a
representation of words that Adams might have spoken at the
Congress of the Revolution. These words were, indeed, so stirring
that one might believe Adams himself had spoken them. The volume
also includes a biographical sketch of Webster and brief notes.
