What was the significance of the Dred Scott v Sandford case?

The Supreme Court decided to interpret the Constitution exactly as the Founding Fathers would have meant it. So when they said that a man's property was sacred, they would have included slaves in their definition of property. According to that reading of the Constitution, slavery was legal in every state of the Union, and the Missouri Compromise had been invalid all along. This verdict delighted the South as much as it offended Northern abolitionists, and it drove the two sides further apart than ever.
