mar 6, 1857 - Scott v Sanford

Description:

Scott, a slave, was moved from MO to IL by his owner. Before they returned to MO ,his owner died. Scott argued that since his owner died in a free state, Scott was a free man. The court ruled in favor of the slave owner, because African-Americans weren't citizens, so they didn't have the right to go to court.
