Dred Scott Objective Summary
This storyboard does not have a description.
Dred Scott was born a slave around 1800 to Peter Blow and was later sold to Dr. Emerson
In 1836 Dr. Emerson was reassigned to a fort in Wisconsin Territory, taking Scott with him. Along the way Scott met and married a slave named Harriet Robinson
Scott went to Mrs. Emerson after the death of Dr. Emerson in 1843 and offered her $300 for their manumission. She refused.
Upon being refused their manumission by their mistress at the time, the Scotts took their case to trial each filing seperatley as Dred Scott had lived in a free state for extended periods of time so because he was free once, he should always have been free
The Scotts were granted their freedom for a time until one day an officer came knocking on their door and revoked their manumission
Again Dred Scott filed for his freedom, and his case even made it to the Supreme court, but he was still ultimately denied his freedom in the end, as five of the nine justices had been raised in slave owning families
