An original poem by Treasure Shields Redmond

Here is a most beautiful poem penned by Ms. Treasure Redmond Shields about Dred Scott as seen through the eye of his wife Harriet.  I am greatly appreciative of the sincerity and gentleness with which she describes who the composite man was.  Bravo, Treasure. 
And Thank You!
