Storyboard Text

  • Dred Scott was a slave owned by Dr. John Emerson in the early 1830s.
  • In the spring of 1836, after a stay of two and a half years, Emerson moved to a fort in the Wisconsin Territory, taking Scott along. While there, Scott met and married Harriet Robinson, a slave owned by a local justice of the peace
  • In 1843 Dr. John Emerson died. Dred and Harriet was both transported to Mrs. Emerson, John's wife. Since they live in Illinois for 2 years, a free state, Scott thought that they were free. He offered Emerson $300 for their freedom. She denied. Scott decided to take the case to court
  • In 1947, Emerson appealed to Scott's lawsuit and both went to the Supreme Court of Missouri. Dred Scott lost this case and him and Harriet were both still legally slaves along with their two children
  • In 1953, Scott sued his owner John Sanford, but except in federal court. The Supreme Court said that since Scott was not a citizen, then he had no right of suing. Scott had lost again, and he would remain a slave
