University of North Carolina Press

This is the first of two thematic chapters covering Everett’s ten years in the House of Representatives. Centering on his first speech and his part in an 1828 debate over whether the federal government should recognize slaves as property, it shows Everett at his most friendly towards slavery. It shows how his drive to protect the conservative credentials of the John Quincy Adams administration in a time of severe sectional controversy was at the heart of these efforts.
