I don't care if slavery is banned! You are sill my property!
No! You are still my property! My husband passed away and left ME in charge!
I know that Emerson has left you in charge of us but can I please buy back my freedom.
I declare that people of African American heritage are not citizens. You do not have a right to sue in court sine you are not a citizen. I can not ban slavery in territories because slaves are property and property is protected by the 5th ammendment.
I should be legally free since I live in a territory that slavery is banned!
That was the right decision! Those slaves are mine!
My slave tried to gain freedom back but I refused!
