The AskHistorians Podcast


Nov 11, 2017

Today, we are lucky to be joined again by /u/freedsmenspatrol! He is here to talk to us about about the entire history of the assault on Charles Sumner on the senate floor on May 22, 1856. He also give a detailed account of the events leading up to the caning, including episodes from the battle over the Fugitive Slave Act so a listener can understand how events lead up to the Civil War. It will give us an amazing background and history of a really important moment in american history. This is a really gripping and narrative podcast, and definitely shines as a great episode to listen to or to recommend to friends interested in the topic, which please do!
