  • Irreconcilable Differences May Lead to Emotional Consequences
  • Dred Scott, we're moving back to Missouri. Load the Wagon
  • Yes Master
  • Dred Scott, we're moving south
  • Yes Master
  • Dred Scott lives in a free state with his master
  • Dred Scott should be free. He lived in free territory. We should help him take his case to court!
  • Scott's master decides to return to the state of Missouri (a slave state)
  • He was sold to a doctor in Illinois, who then moved back to the South
  • 7-2 vote. Dred Scott is not a free man
  • After the doctor died, his new owners hated slavery and thought he should be free since he lived in free territory
  • Eleven Years Later... Dred Scott finally gets to the Supreme Court
  • The court ruled that no black, whether they were free or a slave, could claim U.S. citizenship, so therefore they were unable to petition for freedom.
