Imagine if you will, learning that the most famous slave in the country, was actually owned for years by a U.S. Congressman, who ran for office as a dedicated abolitionist! This slave's quest for freedom took him to the U.S. Supreme Court, unsuccessfully. The ramifications of that case prompted a backwoods lawyer to successfully run for president. And the outcry from the case, helped fuel the most violent conflict our country has even known.
