I, John Emerson, have bought you and we are going to go to Illinois and Wisconsin.
Okay and my name is Dred Scott
Several Years Later... (1846)
My husband literally just died and you bring this up!
I sue you for my freedom Mrs. Emerson, since we are living in free territory
According to the Missouri Law, the circuit court has declared Dred Scott free.
And as his attorney, I claim that Scott has no standing to sue because he is not a citizen.
I, John Sanford, am Emerson's brother and was given ownership over the slave.
Today, March of 1857, the Supreme Court has decided that Dred Scott cannot sue, as he is not a citizen and is only property so therefore he has no right to sue.
This decision has also declared the Missouri Compromise of 1820 as unconstitutional.
