Storyboard Text

  • Dred Scott was granted release in 1850 and moved to a free state to become a janitor.
  • The jury finds Dred Scott and his family permission to be free from Irene Emerson.
  • Thank you so much!
  • But in 1852, Irene Emerson moved to Massachusetts and gave rights to Scott to her brother, John Sanford, who asked the Supreme Court for Scott back.
  • Here are the legal rights to Scott.
  • Thank you! Taney will get me a win on the case!
  • Robert Taney, the lawyer on Sanford's defense, proclaim that Congress had no authority to pass a law depriving persons of their slave property in the territories which made the Missouri Compromise unconstitutional.
  • Missouri Compromise
  • You are mine now!
  • The Supreme Court found that Sanford had a valid case and ordered Dred Scott back to the plantation of John Sanford as he was still listed as "property" of John Sanford.
  • Scott must return to Sanford for his slave duties.
  • From this result, it backs up the fact that the federal government were powerless on the issue of slavery and it startled the North. So Republicans threatened the South by attempting to take over office and reverse the decision.
  • Government has no power!
  • This event gave the South lots of excitement that slavery was to continue but they saw abolitionists as a threat and therefore, tensions grew among the North and the South.
  • Let out slaves keep working.
  • You don't need slaves. Do the work yourselves.
