On this day in 1857, the United States Supreme court ruled 7-2 that a slave, Dred Scott, who had lived in a free state and territory was not entitled to his freedom. Dred Scott was owned by John Emerson of Missouri, and in 1833 Emerson moved several times as part of his service in the U.S. military. Emerson took Scott from Missouri, a slave state, to Illinois and finally into the Wisconsin Territory, both of which were free. By 1838, Scott had met and married Harriet Robinson and she became part of the Emerson household. In the early 1840s Emerson and his wife returned to Missouri with the Scotts and in 1843 Emerson died in Missouri.

Dred Scott reportedly attempted to buy his freedom from Emerson’s wife, but she refused the sale. With the help of anti-slavery lawyers, in 1846, Harriet and Dred Scott filed individual lawsuits for freedom within the state court of Missouri on accounts of their residence in a free state and free territory had freed them from the bonds of slavery. Emerson’s widow left Missouri and left her late husband’s estate to her brother, John F.A Sanford, of New York. Since Sanford was not a resident of Missouri, Scott’s lawyers had to file a lawsuit against him in U.S. Federal Court, and this would then eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court, just two days after the inauguration of Pres. James Buchanan.

Chief Justice Rodger Brooke Taney’s opinion for the court was one of his most controversial in which he ignored precedent, distorted history, and argued that state citizenship had nothing to do with national citizenship. He wrote that African Americans could not sue in federal court since they could not be recognized as citizens of the United States. Taney stated that Scott could not claim to be free by living in Illinois or Wisconsin. Moreover, Taney said that once Scott had returned to Missouri, his status depended on state and local law, despite the doctrine of once free, always free.

In the end, Dred Scott received freedom, but not via the courts. Dred and Harriet Scott were purchased by the Blow family and were freed in 1857. The following year Dred Scott died from tuberculosis, but Harriet Scott lived until June 1876, and in her lifetime saw the American Civil War and the abolition of slavery.
