Storyboard Text

  • We're moving to Illinois so I can make more money, Dred Scott.
  • Since I'm your slave, I don't really have a say in the matter. 
  • 5 Years Later
  • Well this endeavor was unsuccessful. Let's go back to Missouri. 
  • Bet you won't
  • I've been living in a free state for the past five years. I shouldn't be your slave. I'm going to sue you for my freedom.
  • What say you, Supreme Court?
  • You're not a citizen, therefore you do not possess the rights to sue your slave owner. 
  • Yay!
  • South
  • This nullifies the Missouri Compromise because the Supreme Court agreed that slaves in free states are still considered slaves!
  • This sucks :(
  • North
