In 1925, a teacher was convicted and fined for teaching evolution at a school in Tennessee. What is the name given to this highly publicized case that showcased the differences between fundamentalist and modern views of American values?
Answer The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes
Not until the 1960s was evolution put into school books following this trial. This trial also drew prominent Christian and former presidential nominee, William Jennings Bryan, to the case as prosecutor.
