Portrait of Daniel Webster, drawn from life and engraved by James B. Longacre.

Daniel Webster visited Buffalo during his 1833 tour of the western states, arriving at the Eagle Tavern on Friday evening, May 31. He declined an invitation to a public dinner, but he did meet with many of Buffalo's prominent citizens. He also spoke at the christening of a steamer built at Black Rock, named "Daniel Webster" in his honor.
