  • In May 1856, Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts gave a two-day speech that would describe the crimes made towards the South on the ideas of slavery and would single-handedly blame it on the man Andrew Brooks.
  • Sumner Brooks Fiasco
  • Brooks got angered by these allegations, as Charles Sumner wasn't telling the whole truth, telling lies in his speech about mistresses and about his slaves.
  • Sumner Brooks Fiasco
  • Brooks' nephew decided to attack Charles Sumner, in his own office, with a cane repeatedly due to his reaction from the two-day speech.
  • Sumner Brooks Fiasco
  • After Andrew Brooks was stopped from attacking Charles Sumner, the injuries left Sumner crippled, and unable to go back to working in the government for years.
  • This argument would be documented to be one of many resulting conflicts formed from the issues of slavery, and turned many heads to the resulting violence caused by slavery, further spreading the North and South's views.
  • The North, in the end, would see the assult as a barbaric action, not solely on the actual caning, but on America. However, the South would praise the actions made in this feud due to the sticking up for slavery. In the end, the Sumner-Brooks feud leads to more division in the U.S.
