Daniel Webster’s Desk


The desk that the great 19th century statesman Daniel Webster used during his time in the US Senate is now assigned to the senior senator from Webster’s home state of New Hampshire. This practice is referenced in the classic Mr. Smith Goes To Washington; however, in the movie, Mr. Smith (the junior senator) gets the desk when in reality Senator Joseph Paine (the senior senator) should have gotten it.
