    Description

    Vermont Watchman and State Journal (Montpelier): Eight issues from 1857 with Dred Scott Decision coverage. 32 pp., 20" x 26". March 13, 20, 27; April 3, 10, 17, 24; and May 1, 1857. These 8 issues contain long detailed coverage of the landmark DRED SCOTT DECISION by the US Supreme Court. It publishes the announcement of the decision itself on March 13, and went on to publish (on the front pages) the entire opinions written by the Justices of the US Supreme Court in the DRED SCOTT v SANDFORD Case. Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857) was a landmark decision in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the US Constitution was not meant to include American citizenship for black people, regardless of whether they were enslaved or free, and so the rights and privileges that the Constitution confers upon American citizens (specifically referring to the right to keep and bear arms, the right to trial by jury, and the right to not be compelled to being a witness against one's self) could not apply to them.
