Storyboard Text

  • At the United States Senate Charles Sumner prepares for his speech in hopes to unite the people in an understanding that slavery should be abolished.
  • I hope he does well, the future of the country might depend on it.
  • I'm so worried about giving this speech, I need to make everyone join my side.
  • Charles Sumner gave a bitter speech to the members of the Senate entitled "The Crime Against Kansas" in which he called out another Senator who was not in attendance, but his cousin was.
  • Senator Butler is an imbecile that has chosen a mistress. I mean the harlot, slavery.
  • Preston Brooks was furious with Sumner and decided to defend Senator Butler and go after Sumner.
  • How dare you say this about such an honorable man. You know nothing of our life and are in no position to criticize us.
  •  You will pay for what you have done.
  • Still furious with what had been said, Brooks began to beat Sumner with his cane right on the Senate floor.
  • Brooks beat Sumner so badly that he was placed in the hospital for five days, and was near death after the beating. Sumner never served another day after this attack, however, he impacted the lives of many.
  • Ow
  • Senator you have been in the hospital for five days now, but you should be good to go home today. Try not to get into any more fights!
  • The news of what had happened to Senator Sumner spread quickly throughout the United States. It took roughly three and a half years for Sumner to fully recover, but he never lost his beliefs During the civil war he was still a large advocate for abolition along with defeating the Confederacy and keeping piece with England. Brooks on the other hand was pressed with assault charges.
