150th Anniversary of the Dred Scott Decision

One of the most important cases ever tried in the United States was heard in St. Louis' Old Courthouse. Dred Scott and his wife Harriet filed suit against Irene Emerson for their freedom on April 6, 1846. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court which decided the case in 1857, hastening the start of the Civil War. Two thousand seven marks the 150th anniversary of the Supreme Court Decision and Jefferson National Expansion Memorial is commemorating that anniversary with special events and an exhibit.

Did you know the Dred Scott decision was rendered at a courthouse in St. Louis? The courthouse is within short walking distance of the Arch. Would you like the History Club to visit St. Louis next year and visit this historic courthouse?

Making Mistakes (again)

Being human means making mistakes. What you do after the mistake is made is what separates the mature from the immature. A mature person recognizes the mistake, takes responsibility for the mistake, and tries to fix the mistake. Write about a time you made a mistake. How did you solve the problem the mistake presented?
