Abstract
The statue of Daniel Webster at the foot of the State house stands proudly overlooking Boston Common. Eight feet tall, cast in bronze and occupying a 10-foot pedestal, it is a monument to one of the most popular and enduring figures in Massachusetts history. But the journey from the idea to finished product was a long one, and its story involves sunken ships, a debate over where the monument should be placed and what some critics thought was one very ugly statue.
