Special Interest Feature: Dred Scott Immortalized By Missouri Artist Sculptor, E.S. Schubert

We believe this dedication is deserving of all the attention that can be given. Again, it is with sincere gratitude offered to Missouri Artist/Sculptor, E.S. Schubert for immortalizing Dred Scott with your work. Thank you.This portrait of Civil Rights Icon, Dred Scott was originally commissioned for the Hall of Famous Missourians. The first of the edition resides in the Missouri Capitol Building in Jefferson City, Missouri. This sculpture was dedicated 1 month before the dedication of a sculpture of Dred and Harriet Scott outside of The Old Courthouse in St. Louis, MO, making it the first known monumental sculpture of Dred Scott.
