General Interest Article
In 1925 John T. Scopes was convicted of the crime of teaching evolution in violation of a new Tennessee law. The circus-like trial has been regarded by many observers as a rite de passage for twentieth century attitudes-although Scopes was convicted, his trial held anti-evolutionism up to wide public ridicule, and his $100 fine was in fact overturned on a technicality upon appeal.
