You being sued Dred!!
After Dr. Emerson died, the Blows apparently helped Scott sue Emerson's widow for his freedom.
Dred Scott and his wife Harriet Robinson took his case to court because, had been taken to Illinois, a free state, and then Wisconsin territory, where the Missouri Compromise of 1820 prohibited slavery, but was held as a slave.
Even though he lost his case Dred Scott never lost hope to become a free man.
