Storyboard Text

  • The Sack Of Lawrence
  • The Pottawatomie
  • "Come on then, gentlemen of the slave states....We will engage in competition for the virgin soil of Kansas and God give the victory to the side that is stronger in numbers as it is in right." William Seward quoted these words, and this led to the North and South's settlers to invade the Kansas Territory. The emigrant aid societies sent these people in to store up supplies such as rifles, animals, seeds, and farm equipment.
  • Bleeding Kansas
  • In the year of 1856, May 21 an angry mob poured into the town named "Lawrence". They wanted to carry out the Grand Jury's will, they destroyed every piece of the town including anti-slavery Headquarters, two newspaper printing presses, and destroyed looted stores and houses. The cause that had led to all the destruction and hate was Lawrence inhabitants being accused as traitors by a proslavery grand-jury.
  • Violence in the Senate 
  • The sack of Lawrence had drawn up to this event where first the news of the battle led to John Brown who was an abolitionist. His belief was God telling him to fight slavery. On May 24th he and his followers pulled five men from their beds. It was five men because previously he had a mistaken impression that the proslavery posse killed five men, so it was all revenge. The men in bed were tortured and murdered by john brown and his followers.
  • Southern Chivalry-Argument Versus Club
  • Preston S. Brooks
  • Charles Sumner
  • The Pottawatomie massacre triggered dozens of incidents throughout Kansas. It was too many events that took place in Kansas that later the territory, "Bleeding Kansas" blood and gore was seen a lot and this territory became a violent battlefield.
  • Charles Sumner delivered a speech called "The Crime Against Kansas". He attacked his colleagues for them supporting slavery. He was abused toward the aged senator Andrew P. Butler of South Carolina, sneering at him for his proslavery beliefs and making fun of his impaired speech.
  • Colleagues
  • Charles Sumner
  • Andrew P. Butler 
  • Bla Bla Bla Bla Bla
  • This guy sounds like an idiot
  • Butler's nephew was offfended by Sumner's rude comments about his uncle, on May 22, Congressman Preston S. Brooks walked into the Senate Chamber and over to Sumner's desk. His exact words were, "I have read your speech twice over, carefully." and  "It is a libel on South Carolina and Mr. Butler who is a relative of mine." Soon Brooks hit Sumner in the head with a cane and caused him brain damage.
  • Preston Stop!!!!!
