  • Get Back to work now
  • Hi my name is Dred Scott.
  • Hi
  • Hi, I am the Chief and also a slave holder. I am the one who will be making the decisions in this case.
  • Im suing for my freedom. I used to live in a free territory and now i don't.
  • What!!!
  • Dred Scott was a slave to Dr. John E. Emerson
  • Your not even a citizen and since your not a citizen you have no rights.
  • I want my freedom back!!!
  • You being a free person or slave depends on the Missouri laws and what I decide
  • I became free when I lived in a free territory.
  • After John died Mr. Scott was left to John's wife
  • The Missouri compromise is the 5th amendment and it is unconstitutional. You are still a slave no matter what you thing about it. You WILL go back to the south to be a slave.
  • What about the Missouri compromise?
  • 11 years later the case went to the supreme court. The chief argued about Dred not being a citizen and getting his rights back.
  • Since you returned to goergia you are still considered a slave. Just because you lived on free soil it doesn't make you free
  • The final decision was made. It came to a conclusion that Dred Scott would go back to being a slave. This decision angered a lot of people and it broke into a war.
