This historic courthouse is where the famous Dred Scott trial(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dred_Scott) took place.

This case was one of the major causes for the US Civil War(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War) in which more Americans died than in EVERY war since then added together. It pitted brother against brother and separated families.

So this is when that all happened. Gosh PP, this photo tells a story.
This is a good link to the Dred Scott trial for those who have never heard of it, and also for students of American History.
