July 21, 1925: Scopes Found Guilty in “Monkey Trial”

On this day in 1925, a Tennessee high school science teacher, John Thomas Scopes, was found guilty for allegedly teaching evolution, which violated Tennessee state law. The Scopes Trial, known as the “Monkey Trial,” lasted only a week, but ignited conversation and debate over whether to teach Creation or Evolution in the classroom.

The court acquitted Scopes on a technicality but upheld the constitutionality of the state law which was eventually overturned in 1967.
