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 on May 9, 2012, one month before the dedication of a statue of Dred and Harriet Scott outside of The Old Courthouse in St. Louis, MO, making it the first known monumental statue of Dred Scott.

Thomas Jefferson’s 9th generation grandson, Shannon Lanier, joined Lynne as they reviewed some of the 10 years of reconciliation activities. Among the guest at the 11th annual Cherry Blossom Festival was a living DAUGHTER Ira, Gray Jordan, of a Civil War Veteran. That’s right….. 91 years old, her father had her when he was 82 and she reminisced about her father’s days in the civil war before his death when she was almost 9 years old.
