On March 19,1856 Republican Senator Charles Sumner started a violent speech on the topic "The crime against Kansas". He attacked the pro-slavery establishment and parliamentary representatives in general but he addressed himself particularly against the old Senator Andrew Butler of South Carolina, who, some days before energetically sustained the Kansas had to be admitted in the Union as a slave State.

Indeed, Sumner's attitude and verbal attack against Butler were really excessive and, when the speech was over, the nephew of Butler, Honorable Preston Books,

seized by anger approached Sumner and hit him five or six time on the head with his walking stick, knocking him down bleeding and unconscious.

The happening contributed to worsen further on the tensions and enlarge the furrow already in being between North and South
