Summary
"In 1925, a football coach and part-time biology teacher named John Scopes was arrested for teaching evolution in defiance of Tennessee state law. For eight sweltering days, hundreds of people streamed into the little town of Dayton, Tennessee to watch his trial. It became an epic event of the twentieth-century, a debate over free speech that spiraled into an all-out duel between science and religion. Featuring two of the century's greatest orators, attorneys Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan, the Scopes trial was America's first major media event, with hundreds of reporters and live radio coverage dispersing the sensational news."--Container
