  • Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum


Between the American Revolution and the Civil War, three statesmen dominated national politics through the first half of the nineteenth century. The interactions between Henry Clay of Kentucky, Daniel Webster of Massachusetts, and John C. Calhoun of South Carolin tell an important story about the immense challenges facing the second generation of American independence: the people charged with making the experiment in self-government work.

In partnership with the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation and the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library & Museum, the Hauenstein Center will host H.W. Brands, the Jack S. Blanton Senior Chair in History at the University of Texas at Austin, for a presentation about the Great Triumvirate, and about the nation’s highest legislative chamber in a time when political speeches mattered.
