We have lots of primary sources available through our United States History libguide and many of our databases, but since Dred Scott who was part of a famous Supreme Court case is your subject I am going to recommend that you use our United States Government libguide:
- Go to the United States Government libguide (link below).
- Click on the Judiciary & Supreme Court tab.
- Find the Supreme Court Cases box and click on The Oyez Project: U.S. Supreme Court Cases.
- Type Dred Scott in the SEARCH box and click on DRED SCOTT v. SANDFORD to get a summary of the case
- To get you primary document, look on the right side under Case Basics and choose on the of the options. A good one to go with could be Opinion 60 U.S. 393 (1857), the opinion of the court on the case.
