Scopes Trial 1925 One of the most famous trials in American history was the 1925 Scopes trial in Dayton, Tennessee. John T. Scopes, a young science teacher, was charged with violating the Butler Act, a state law that, in a roundabout way, prohibited the teaching of evolution in public schools. Scopes was quickly relegated to a minor character in the trial as the two lawyers took center stage. Civil libertarian groups hired famed defense lawyer Clarence Darrow (on the left) to represent Scopes. The prosecution obtained the services of former presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan (right), a renowned creationist and famous orator. The highlight of the trial occurred when Darrow called Bryan to testify as an expert on the Bible. (The jury was out of the courtroom when Darrow cross-examined Bryan, and the entire exchange was expunged from the court record as the judge ruled it was irrelevant to whether or not Scopes had broken the law.) Scopes was eventually found guilty and fined $100. The conviction was later overturned on a technicality: the jury was supposed to establish the fine, not the judge. Actually, the trial should not have even occurred. Scopes was not at school on the day cited in the charge. The Butler Act remained on the books in Tennessee until 1976. The trial inspired the 1960 movie Inherit The Wind.

Dewey Defeats Truman The infamous headline in the Chicago Daily Tribune that prematurely declared Thomas Dewey the winner of the 1948 U.S. presidential election based on early projections. Harry Truman got a kick out of it.

1884 Political Cartoon Think presidential election campaigns are nasty now? They're quite tame compared to the good old days. In 1884 the Democrats learned that Republican candidate Grover Cleveland was making chid support payments to a young woman named Maria Halpirn. Cleveland admitted he may have been the child's father, but there were numerous other prominent men who had sampled the horizontal refreshments in the willing Miss Halpirn's boudoir. (Cleveland apparently took responsbility because he was the only bachelor among Miss Halpirn's plentiful beaus!) Democrats mocked Cleveland with the chant, 'Ma! Ma! Where's my pa?' After Cleveland won the election, the Dems added, 'Gone to the White House...ha, ha, ha!'
