Storyboard Text

  • Dred Scott was a slave that had been sold to an army surgeon named Dr. Emerson in his early life, after his old owner died.
  • One day while traveling with Dr. Emerson as usual we went to Wisconsin Territory and little did I know I found my new wife.
  • Dr. Emerson passed away in 1843, and it left me thinking what would his widowed wife do with me and my wife.
  • We went to file a case for our freedom because Mrs. Emerson was unfairly holding us as slaves even though we were in a free state.
  • We took our case to the Supreme Court in order to get our freedom granted from Mrs. Emerson.
  • Now we have to live with Mrs. Emerson's brother in a state where slavery is allowed so now we are not free once again.
