The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes (Scopes Trial):  "In the summer of 1925, schoolteacher John Scopes stood trial in Dayton, Tennessee, for violating the state law against the teaching of evolution.  Two of the country's most famous attorneys faced off in the trial.  William Jennings Bryan (WJB), 65 years old and a three time Democratic presidential nominee, prosecuted; 67-year-old Clarence Darrow, a stauch agnostic and who had defended Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, represented the defense."
