  • In 1846, Dred Scott sued for his freedom against Dr. John Emerson's widowed wife. Until Rodger B. Taney came along and stated that African Americans were not US citizens according to the U.S. Constitution meaning Scott cannot sue.
  • Scott said things questioning his freedom. Which Taney flatly disagreed with.
  • Abraham Lincoln, a Senator from Illinois then warned that a future court ruling which will be later known as "the next Dred Scott Decision" would prohibit the states from banning slavery. Since the right to ban slavery was not a decision made by Congress.
