I can't believe this is happening. Me a poor slave girl has been purchased and allowed to marry my soon to be husband Dred Scott.
Today our master Dr. Emerson died, Dred and I are sad since Emerson purchased me so I could marry Dred and he treated us slaves with care.
Recently there has been talk that the mistress would sell, us to another Army captain. Hopefully my husband can find a way to receive our freedom.
Today Dred and I tried to pay the mistress $300 for both our manumission but she refused. Now that the master died she has been very cold blooded. Now Dred and I have no choice but to take this to court.
My husband and I both filed separate cases, going in at first we knew that we were going to loose because we are slaves and black. Also most of the member of the jury are slave owners.
No you may not be free!!
After one of our retrials, we were able to be free. We had already had a child and were ready to start a family. That ended after 2 years when they came to a door step and took away our freedom. It was the worst day ever.
As sad as it was, we lost the case after going all the way to the supreme court. The good part is our case and others like it have caused conflict between the north and the south. There has been talk that they might go into war to ban slavery.
