The “Scopes Trial” (Scopes v. State, 152 Tenn. 424, 278 S.W. 57 (Tenn. 1925), often called the “Scopes Monkey Trial”) was an American legal case that tested a law passed on March 13, 1925, which forbade the teaching, in any state-funded educational establishment in Tennessee, of “any theory that denies the story of the Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals.” The case was a watershed in the creation-evolution controversy………………………………..

John Scopes, a high school teacher, was charged on May 5, 1925 with teaching evolution from a chapter in a textbook which showed ideas developed from those set out in Charles Darwin’s book On the Origin of Species. The trial pitted two of the preeminent legal minds of the time against one another. Three time presidential candidate and former Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan headed up the prosecution, while prominent trial attorney Clarence Darrow spoke for the defense.1 The famous trial was made infamous by the fictionalized accounts given in the 1955 play Inherit the Wind, the 1960 Hollywood motion picture and the 1965, 1988 and 1999 television films of the same name

    Lovely traditionally captured shot Joe!
    Black and white architecture is a genre I’m increasingly drawn to, this is great.

  • Thanks, I think that color often gets in the way of seeing the lines and shapes that are so important in architecture.
