  • Ailin O'NeilRed PM A Dred Scott Project
  • Dred Scott was born a slave in Virginia. His owner was a man named Dr. John Emerson.
  • Several years later, Dred Scott married and had 2 kids. But when Dr. John Emmerson died, he left them to his wife.
  • Dred tried to reason that he should be free, but Mrs. Emerson refused.
  • "We should be free since we lived in free states for a long time"
  • Dred Scott took the case to court, and all the way up to the Supreme Court.
  • Sadly, Dred Scott lost the case because the judge said that African Americans were property of their owners. But, Dred losing his case got the Northerners to do more about slavery in the South.
