[Accession #8226 also included a silver goblet (now held by McKissick Museum) presented to show support following the Brooks-Sumner affair in 1856. Goblet bears engraved inscriptions on two of its six gothic panels: "From the neighbors and admirers of Hon. Preston S. Brooks, this testimonial is presented, as a full endorsement of his gallant conduct on May 22nd 1856,"and "'Ninety Six' repeats 'By his deeds ye shall know him.'" The goblet bears no hallmark but appears to be the work of a New York or Philadelphia silversmith.]
