In 1799, Dred Scott was born into slavery.
He was sold to John Emerson, a U.S. army doctor.
He got married to another slave, Harriet Robinson, in 1836
They traveled with Dr. Emerson to the free territories of Illinois and Wisconsin, but then returned to Missouri.
I want my freedom!!
When Emerson died, Scott tried to buy his freedom from Emerson's widow but she refused.
Hmm...I don't think that's how it works...
I spent time in a free state so that means I am FREE!!
He sued for his freedom and lost the first trial. He won the second but it got overturned.
