Scott Free

Scott was promised freedom but was denied it in the end. Dred Scott was a slave to a white man in the South during slavery times in America. The man said that he would write papers indicating that upon his death Dred would be a free man. But when the man died his wife demanded that Dred remain a slave. Dred got a lawyer to represent himself and claim his freedom. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court where the court ruled that a balck man had no rights and Dred became the property of the man's wife. Scott Free is a lie.
