Author Name    Hager, Ruth Ann (Abels).

Title   Dred & Harriet Scott: Their Family Story.

Publisher    St. Louis, Missouri: St. Louis County Library, 2010. First Edition.

Seller ID   7259fd

Quarto, paperbound (stiff, slick, full-color illustrated green wrappers), xvi + 173 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner inscription and slight rumple to upper cover. From lower cover: Dred Scott, a St. Louis slave, used for his freedom in 1846. He based his suit on the time he lived with his slave owner in free territory. On 6 March 1857, the U. S. Supreme Court handed down the Dred Scott decision denying him and his family their freedom. Reaction to this historic decision pushed the country a step closer to the Civil War. The decision had tremendous impact on the country, but how did their eleven year legal battle affect the lives of Dred, his wife Harriet, and their daughters, Eliza and Lizzie? How did the Scott family secure their freedom? What happened to Harriet, Eliza, and Lizzie after Dred's death? How long did the Scott women live? In 2006, Mrs. Hager discovered new information about the death of Dred Scott's widow, Harriet. Since then, with the support and endorsement of Scott descendants and the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation, she has researched the family's story. Her groundbreaking findings open up a new chapter in American history.
