Dread Scott by: Mackenzie Dawson - Red Block one
Dread Scott was a slave born in Virginia
In 1833, Scott was sold to Dr. John Emerson who took him to Wisconsin territory where slavery is banned
In 1846 the Scotts tried to buy their freedom from Sanford, but she refused then Scott sued the court claiming that they are legally free
Cheif Justice Rodger B. Taney argued that Dred scott did not have a right to sue in court since he was not a citizen . He went on to discuss that congress can not ban slavery because slaves are property, and property is protected by the 5th amendment .
In the end, the Scotts lost the case, and went back to their lives as slaves. As this did not end well for the scott family, it is a great story of an african american fo fought for his freedom and rights.
