  • In March of 1855, Kansas was split. The Governemt had decided to give the option of slave state or non-slave state to the people. The anti-slavery states were urging their supporters to move to Kansas. The pro-slavery states were doing the same. 
  • Dred Scott Case
  • The result of the vote ended up favoring the Pro-Slavery candidates. They destroyed all anti-slavery propaganda and destroyed newspapers. The aboltionist's were not happy.
  • Supreme Court
  • The two sides fought viciously with each other. Both sides lost most of their men over the decision. The fighting continued for many years after the decision. 
  • Dred Scott Decision
  • Dred Scott was a slave for John Emerson. While Emerson was in the war, Scott accompanied him and the pair eventually returned to Missouri. After Emerson died, Scott decided to sue for his freedom.
  • I want freedom!!!
  • NO
  • Eventually, the case was brought to the Supreme Court. Roger B. Taney argued on the side of the prosecution. He said that no black man has any rights that a white man should acknowledge. 
  • Aboltionists everywhere were outraged. The decision to not grant freedom brought a great uproar within the anti-slavery community. They saw this as an opportunity for action.
