The Caning with Stephen Puleo on Fieldstone Common
The Caning with Stephen Puleo. One of the most shocking and provocative events in American history, the caning of Senator Charles Sumner in 1856 convinced the north and the south that the gulf between them was unbridgeable. As a result of the caning, the country was pushed, inexorably and unstoppably, to war.
