The Nuremberg trials were conducted by an international tribunal
made up of representatives from the United States, the
Soviet
Union
, France and Great Britain. It was the first trial of its kind in
history, and the defendants faced charges ranging from crimes
against peace, to crimes of war, to crimes against humanity. Lord
Justice Geoffrey Lawrence, the British member, presided over
the proceedings, which lasted 10 months and consisted of 216
court sessions.

MONKEY TRIAL BEGAN ON THIS DAY IN 1925

See the source image


In Dayton,
Tennessee, the so-called Scopes Monkey Trial began
with John Thomas Scopes, a young high school science teacher,
accused of teaching
evolution in violation of a Tennessee state
law.

The law, which had been passed in March, made it a misdemeanor
punishable by fine to “teach any theory that denies the story of the
Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead
that man has descended from a lower order of animals.” With local
businessman George Rappleyea, Scopes had conspired to get
charged with this violation, and after his arrest the pair enlisted
the aid of the American Civil Liberties Union (
ACLU) to organized
a defense.

Hearing of this coordinated attack on Christian fundamentalism,
William Jennings Bryan, the three-time Democratic presidential
candidate and a fundamentalist hero, volunteered to assist the
prosecution. Soon after, the great attorney Clarence Darrow
agreed to join the ACLU in the defense, and the stage was set
for one of the most famous trials in U.S. history
