    found this The increasing political conflict between North and South. Congressman Preston Brooks from South Carolina attacked Senator Charles Sumner with his walking cane, at Sumner's desk in the Senate because of a speech Sumner made that blamed Southerners for the pro slavery violence in Kansas. Sumner was beaten and defaced so badly that he did not return back to Senate for three years. When news spread of this event, Southerners supplied Brooks with many replacement walking canes.
