    Dread scott vs Sandford, (1857) this is prior to the Civil War, so you may want to think about slavery. This argued that all African Americans (slave or free) could not sue in court because they weren't citizens. think about the result of this. In the 1850s the slavery issue was stating to become a contentious matter. The south was pro-slavery, while the north was largely anti-slavery. You can imagine that this would have angered ant slavery activists, especially in the north while the south was supportive of the decision. But in the 1850s you saw more violent clashes between those who were pro and anti slavery, and examples of this were incidences like the john brown raids, and bleeding Kansas to name a few. there were those who felt slavery was immoral, others believed it should be up to the states to decide whether or not to endorse slavery and then there were states who supported it. so you can see, that there were so many different opinions/view points about slavery and even at this time it was pretty clear which states supported it and which did not.
