Dred Scott Home Site


Dred Scott, the plaintiff in the famous Scott v. Sanford case, was brought to Huntsville as a slave in 1818 and lived in Alabama for 12 years. In its now infamous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Scott 7-2 in 1857, saying that no blacks, free or slave, could be citizens of the United States.
