Hailed as a classic when first published in The Saturday Evening Post in 1936, Stephen Vincent Benet's "The Devil and Daniel Webster" stands in the front ranks of beloved American short stories.  A hard-luck New Hampshire farmer sells his soul to the Devil, then enlists the help of Daniel Webster, "...the Union's stay and New Hampshire's pride..." to win it back in trial.  The Devil summons the worst traitors and criminals from our history, and Webster must convince them to set free their fellow.
