Music: The Ash Grove - Welsh Folk Song

FADE IN:

Florence, Alabama - 1827

HARRIET SCOTT (V.O.)
Florence is a bustling new town, new buildings being built in one day.

Peter Blow was an Innkeeper. He has temporary success.

Peter Blow sets up an Inn near the Andrew Jackson military road.

Dred Scott's dad Solomon worked carrying the luggage and serving at dinnertime.

His mom Hannah cooked and did the laundry.

Dred was a hostler, in charge of caring for the travelers horses including feeding, currying and making sure the horses were shod properly.

Dred took care for the Blow boys, Peter, Henry, Taylor, and William and the two Blow girls, Charlotte and Elizabeth

He would give the children rides on the horses.

In a few years Peter Blow was failing at this business. The third in succession.

HARRIET SCOTT (V.O.)
In 1827, the General Assembly of Alabama authorizes a Lottery to raise funds to build a lodge for the Florence chapter of the Ancient Freemasons.

Peter Blow agrees to assist in raising funds. No lottery occurred but the organizer's including Peter were held accountable for paying awards.

Another setback.

Time to move again.

HARRIET SCOTT (V.O.)
Understandably so Peter Blow is becoming depressed. He decides to move the Blow’s to St. Louis.

His family and servants board the steamship Atlantic. They sail north on the Tennessee River to the Ohio River then headed west until they arrived at the Mississippi River.

They arrived at the gateway to the west to start a new hotel at the riverfront of St. Louis. It was called the Jefferson Hotel.

FADE TO - Panoramic view of the city of St. Louis and the boat levees.
