Storyboard Text

  • I have had enough of this slavery in the South. I mean look at this small house next to me - this is all the land that a slave owns. Something must be done to prevent this from continuing.
  • Sumner and Brooks
  • U.S Senate
  • Andrew P. Butler is the Don Quixote of slavery having chosen a mistress who is chaste in his sight... the harlot slavery.
  • U.S Senate (In Recess)
  • You cannot accuse my cousin, Andrew P. Butler, of committing a crime he did not do! You have also been very vicious towards him so I will make you suffer!
  • Mr. Sumner looks unconscious! We must get him to the doctor immediately!
  •  Mr. Sumner, you have recovered well and may now head home. You will not be able to return to the Senate for about 4 years though.
  • As far as the legacy of the nearly deadly uprising involving Charles Sumner and Preston Brooks, both of these men were considered heroes in different ways. Sumner was a hero throughout the North and Brooks was a hero throughout the South. Sumner returned to the Senate 4 years after the incident and Brooks was reelected as a member of the House of Representatives for South Carolina.
