Storyboard Text

  • Elena Zimmerman Social Studies Block 2 Dred Scott Case
  • Dred Scott was the slave of army nurse Dr. John Emerson. Dred traveled many places with his owner unlike other slaves.
  • When the doctor died, Dred was left to the mercy of his wife. She said that he would be sold to different owners.
  • Dred sued and ended up in front of the Supreme Court. He argued that he was not treated well and that he had lived in free states before. He said that this meant he was free.
  • But Chief Justice Roger B. Taney argued that Dred didn't have the right to sue because he wasn't a citizen. He went on to say that Congress could not ban slavery because slaves were property.
  • In the end, Dred stayed a slave. But this angered Northerners, and now they wanted a war more that ever.
