  • !!Vote Me!! Charles Sumner 4 Senator of Massachusetts!
  • Charles Sumner was elected Senator of Massachusetts in 1851, he was known for his devote belief in black suffrage and his many appearances/opinions at political protests.
  • •"The true greatness of nations is in those qualities which constitute the greatness of the individual."
  • !!Vote Me!! Charles Sumner 4 Senator of Massachusetts!
  • It was in 1856 when Sumner delivered his anti-slavery speech entitled "The Crime Against Kansas" to Congress chasticing slavery supporters.
  • "The slave power dares anything, and it can be conquered only by the united masses of the people. From Congress to the people, I appeal.'
  • The abolitionist purposefully "called out" South Carolina Senator Andrew Butler for his encouragement towards colored imprisonment.
  • "The Senator from South Carolina has read many books of chivalry, and believes himself a chivalrous knight, with sentiments of honor and courage. Of course he has chosen a mistress to whom he has made his vows, and who, though ugly to others, is always lovely to him; though polluted in the sight of the world, is chaste in his sight I mean the harlot, Slavery. For her, his tongue is always profuse in words."
  • BLASPHAMEY!
  • Senator Andrew Butler informs his nephew Preston Brooks (Member of H.O.Representatives of South Carolina) about Sumner's powerfully insulting speech.
  • How Dare He?! That blasted black buddy...
  • On May 22, 1856 two days after Sumner's Speech, Brooks brutally beat up Charles with a cane into unconsciousness as revenge for opening his mouth. This beating would go down in American history...
  • IT'S WEAKLINGS LIKE YOU WHO FALL SO EASILY! FACE YOUR PUNISHMENT...
  • SOMEONE HELP ME! PLEASE!
