Dred Scott v. Sandford
This is Dred Scott.
This is a cover sheet by the Supreme Court, summarizing the lower court disposition from Missouri, filed on December 30, 1854.
This is the Court’s judgment in Dred Scott, dated March 7, 1857.
The Dred Scott decision found unconstitutional the Missouri Compromise of 1820, which designated all new states north of 36 degrees, 30 minutes (except Missouri) to be free states.
