Biography: Dred Scott

This short biography focuses on Dred Scott, an enslaved person who sued for his freedom during the 1850s. In 1857, the case Scott v. Sanford was brought before the US Supreme Court. The decision, issued by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, affirmed that the suit had no basis because Scott was not a citizen of the United States.
