People in Kentucky and throughout the United States in the 1850s said Henry Clay was an example of self-reliance, meaningful and unselfish public service, and success without formal schooling or powerful connections. Clay and Kentucky helped one another as Kentucky was one of the most respected states and was the commercial and manufacturing center of Appalachia. Clay pushed Kentucky further into the manufacturing center and made a name for himself as a public speaker. Clay earned the praise of Lexington natives, pastors, politicians, and scholars.
