Today in History
1521 Magellan discovers Guam
1836 3,000 Mexicans beat 182 Texans at the Alamo, after 13 day fight
1857 Dred Scott Decision: Supreme Court rules slaves cannot be citizens





Dred Scott decision
Chief Justice Roger B. Taney,speaking for the majority...We think they [people of African ancestry] are . . . not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word "citizens" in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States. . . ." President Abraham Lincoln's response was as follows, "We believe, as much as Judge Douglas, (perhaps more) in obedience to, and respect for the judicial department of government. We think its decisions on Constitutional questions, when fully settled, should control, not only the particular cases decided, but the general policy of the country, subject to be disturbed only by amendments of the Constitution as provided in that instrument itself. More than this would be revolution. But we think the Dred Scott decision is erroneous. We know the court that made it, has often over-ruled its own decisions, and we shall do what we can to have it to over-rule this."
This was landmark decision of one of the darker moments in American History that punctuates that educated leadership is just as capable of sinking to the lowest common denominator as anyone else.

In another century, 182 soldiers at the Alamo, died fighting for their independence from Mexico in what we now call, Texas. Remember The Alamo.
