|Robert E. Lee, A General in the Confederacy who fought against the slaves being freed is Coming down in Baltimore-"Good bye and good ridance" Why was it allowed to stay put for so many years? Americans ignored it except the ones that got hurt by it, the sons and daughters of the slaves. They tried to ignore it too but there were other things that had more immediate importance at the time (food, shelter, education, equality) We can't take back slavery but maybe Americans new and old ones can take reponsibility for it and not permit that things like these are put in Public land that belong to blacks and whites alike.Also that people that want to be part of a nazi system in which we lost so many Americans fighting or the civil war in which there was a clear wnner, those people cannot be equated with responsible americans that know their history and abide by the law as written by the Constitution and its ammendments.

Dred Scott was a slave. Under Articles III and IV, argued Taney, no one but a citizen of the United States could be a citizen of a state, and that only Congress could confer national citizenship. Taney reached the conclusion that no person descended from an American slave had ever been a citizen for Article III purposes. The Court then held the Missouri Compromise unconstitutional, hoping to end the slavery question once and for all.
