Dred Scott case and the John Brown case
Dred Scott was a slave who sued for his freedom on the premise that he had once lived on free soil. In 1857 Chief Justice Taney explained the ruling for this case. He wrote that, as a slave, Scott could not bring a lawsuit. He wrote that Scott was not free even though he had lived on free soil because the Fifth Amendment prohibits Congress from taking away property without “due process of law.” He wrote that Congress did not have the power to prohibit slavery in any territory. The decision meant that the Constitution protected slavery. Southerners and Northern Democrats were pleased with the decision, but Republicans and other antislavery groups were outraged. After abolitionist John Brown heard of the attack of Lawrence, the antislavery capital in Kansas, he led six men along Pottawatomie Creek, where they killed five supporters of slavery. On October 16, 1859, Brown led 18 men on an attack on an arsenal in Harper’s Ferry, Virginia. He was financed by abolitionists to do this. He was quickly defeated, convicted of treason and murder, and hanged. Some antislavery people opposed Brown for promoting violence, but others, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, considered him a hero and a martyr.
