Storyboard Text

  • 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.
