    TWO CDVs OF CAPT. E.V. SUMNER, SON OF SENATOR CHARLES SUMNER. ca. 1866 Two sparkling CDVs of Capt. E.V. Sumner are offered here. Sumner's father is perhaps best remembered for having been beaten nearly to death with a cane by his pro-slavery opponent, Preston Brooks, on the floor of the Senate. In one image, Capt. Sumner is seated by himself, in the other he is standing next to an unidentified seated man. In both images, the cheeks of the subjects have been lightly tinted. In excellent condition.
