Gallery: Monkey Trial
When evolution and creationism clashed in Dayton, Tennessee, the national news media was there, including Jazz Age newspaper celebrity H. L. Mencken. Articles, cartoons, and reports from the trial almost universally skewered William Jennings Bryan, representing his crusade against evolution as outdated, self-serving, or dangerously narrow-minded.
Browse political cartoons about Bryan and the trial in this gallery. They present one side of the Scopes trial argument; visit this site's music feature to hear folk songs advocating the other side's views.
