Although previous historians have reduced "Sumner's speech to a catalogue of insults" and "thus diminished the oration and the violence it inspired to the level of personal rancor between erratic individuals," Pierson argues that "Sumner's political acumen was considerable" and the speech was calculated "to escalate the level of anti-slavery rhetoric in Massachusetts [where he was preparing to stand for reelection] by attacking the morality of slavery itself." 771.1
