Henry Clay’s Biography

From 1804 to 1809 he was a member of the Kentucky legislature, in 1806 and in 1809, he participated in the Washington Senate. In 1810 he became a member of the House of Representatives. Clay was one of the fiercest defenders of the war between the United States and the United Kingdom, and after the defeat, he negotiated peace in the Ghent agreements (December 24, 1814). President of the Congress in diverse occasions, promoted the protectionism and was interested in fortifying the economic means of EE. & Nbsp; UU. He was the creator of the Missouri Compromise, for which he received the nickname of the Great Peacemaker.

Along with John Quincy Adams and Daniel Webster, he coordinated the Republican National Party or Whig Party. This party was the great alternative to the Democratic Party of Andrew Jackson. He was a candidate for president on several occasions, and even in the campaign of 1832 he managed to be a serious rival of Jackson. Despite his gifts as a speaker and being very popular, Clay was never elected president.
