CHARLES SUMNER
Massachusetts senator and prominent abolitionist signs name in black ink
Signature: "C. Sumner" in black ink. 3x1¼. Charles Sumner (1811-1874) represented Massachusetts in the US Senate from 1851 until his death. Elected under the banner of the Free Soil Party, he joined the Republican Party soon after its 1854 foundation. Sumner's fiery rhetoric against slavery and against what he believed to be slavery's domination of the US government so incited South Carolina Congressman Preston Brooks that he brutally caned Sumner, who was sitting at his Senate desk, into unconsciousness (1856). Sumner spent three years recuperating, during which Massachusetts defiantly re-elected him, and then returned as a leader of the militant wing of the Republican Party during the Civil War and Reconstruction. He was Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee (1861-1871). Toned. Slightly soiled with toned stains throughout. Otherwise, fine condition.
