Daniel Webster was opposed to slavery on principle but maintained that the Constitution protected the right to enslave people in the south and upholding the constitution was his only notion of protecting the Union. This speech, known as the "Seventh of March Speech" was in support of Henry Clay's compromise in response to the abolitionist Wilmot Proviso designed to eliminate slavery in the newly acquired territory from the Mexican War. He argued for compromise on the issue of slavery, simultaneously urging Northerners to eschew antislavery measures and cautioning Southerners against disunion.
