  • Did Dredd Scott ever become free from Misouri Courts?
  • Alyssa Martinez
  • I do not get it, since I live in a state that bans slavery, doesn't that mean I'm n longer a slave?
  • Did Dredd Scott ever become free from Misouri Courts?
  •  Missouri Compromise     Battle of alamo                1820                                     1836
  • Exactly, so Dred Scott does not have the right to file suit in federal court.
  • The nations founders believe that African Americans, had no rights which a white man was bound to respect.
  •                                      Firing on Ft. Sumter                                       1861            
  • 1846
  • Because Scott had returned to the slave state of Missouri , his status as a slave, or free depended on the laws of Missouri. 
  • Dred Scott sues for freedom here in the Missouri state courts.
  • A few years after in March of 1857, Rodger B. Taney had concluded that all African Americans, whether they were slave or free were still not citizens. This was under the U.S Constitution.
  • I can not believe this, we had argued that Congress held the right to ban slavery n federal territories, now this?
  • Taney also did rule on all of the other issues before Court. As to whether Scott's residence on free soil made him free or not, it did not.
  • FINALLY, we are given freedom.
  • Finally, Taney declared for the Missouri Copromise on slavery of 36,30 ' to be unconstitutional. Congress could not prohibit someone from taking slaves into a federal territory.
  • In the 5th Amendment it states that, "no one could be deprived of life , liberty, or property without due process of law"
  • The ruling had many northeners stunned. The Republicans were basiclly upset. The nations most highest court ruled that congress did not have the right.
  • Abraham Lincoln warned that any future court ruling would prohibit states from banning slavery. He was finally free!
