Dred Scott Supreme court cases have
many different aspects
That includes Background info, Interesting arguments, and a final decision. Especially the
Dred Scott V. Sanford case Questions from what years
did he live in illinois? what did scott
sue for? Though Background info is good to know it is not enough the court still needs the arguments. The arguments under article IV of the constitution dred scot could not be granted citizenship by the supreme court The Missouri compromise says that slavery is prohibited in
the Louisiana territory. (This goes in Dred's favor) Dred Scott claimed that since his daughter was born in a free territory she was free Sanford said that the Missouri compromise was unconstitutional unconstitutional-Labeled not O.K By the presiding law of the land. prohibited-Forbidden,Not o.k Questions The Final decision What did Sanford say about the Missouri compromise? Who was born in a free territory? The ruling was handed down on March 6,1857. The court referred to article III Section 2 And they decided that Dred was not a citizen so he couldn't bring stuff to court AKA the whole case was illegal. The decision that Dred was not free caused the panic of 1857,a whole
'nother story. The decision gave a small group of democrats the evidence they needed to repel The Missouri Compromise.
