Storyboard Text

  • 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 
  • In 1850
  • 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.
