  • The Dred Scott case. Is he free or a slave?
  • Missouri Compromise of 1820
  • Compromise of 1850
  • I'm free now that my owner died and I'm in a free territory. I'm going to court and becoming free.
  • 1846
  • No! I am your owner now.
  • 1861 Civil War begins
  • Dred Scott and Dr. John Emerson traveled around the United States on tours of duty throughout the Illinois and Missouri territory.
  • You are free!
  • After Dred Scott traveled around the Illinois and Missouri territories for 7 years, his owner, Dr. John Emerson died.
  • You are not free you are a slave. No black should have the same rights as a white.
  • Dred Scott and Dr. John Emerson's wife are arguing if that Dred Scott is free or not. Then Dred Scoot sued her and took her to court to hear from a judge and jury.
  • You are not free and I am your owner.
  • In a lower court they judge and jury were in his favor and decided that Dred Scott was free. Then the case was taken to the Missouri Supreme Court.
  • Once the case was examined by the Missouri Supreme Court they over turned the ruling. As above the judge said that blacks should never have the same rights as black and that Dred Scott is a slave.
  • 11 years later Scott's case reached the United States Supreme Court in 1857. The ruling that was decided in the Missouri Supreme Court stood as is saying that since Dred Scott was a slave he did not have the right to bring a case ti court and he remain a slave.
