Over the next decade, the case would find its way to the United States Supreme Court, where a majority of the justices denied Scott’s case on the basis of his race. The ensuing Civil War and ratification of the 14th amendment to the Constitution would redefine citizenship legally in the United States, yet anecdotally, the idea of American citizenship has been highly contested over the nearly two centuries following Scott’s initial suit.
