Storyboard Text

  • Dred ScottZoe BoydBlock 3
  • Hi!  My name is Dred Scott.  I was born into slavery in 1799 in South Hamptons, Virginia, and  I died on September 17, 1858.
  • And I'm Irene Emerson.  My husband, Dr. John Emerson, was Dred Scott's owner.  After he died, I took over as Dred's owner.
  • I'm Dred's wife,  Harriet Robinson Scott.
  • When I had enough money to buy freedom for me and my family, I asked my master (Irene) if I could buy my freedom.
  • We're Dred's children, Eliza and Lizzie Scott.
  • I said no, because I wanted to keep Dred as a slave.
  • So, you should be free because you have been in states that have banned slavery, so now you think you are a free man.
  • So, I sued Irene because I didn't think it was fair that I couldn't buy my freedom.
  •  My court case got moved up to  upper level courts until it reached the Supreme Court.
  • The North became enraged at this decision, and this court case helped lead up to the Civil War.
  • Dred Scott, I hereby declare, that you have to be a slave for the rest of your life because slaves are property, and the amendments say  that you cannot take away someone else's property.
