A black and white photograph of John Washington Butler, author of the Butler Act. This was taken from a larger compilation photograph of all of the members of the House of Representatives in the 64th General Assembly of the State of Tennessee.
This postcard shows the Rhea County Courthouse. This was the site of the famous "Scope's Tial" that pitted William Jennings Bryan, speaking on behalf of divine creation, against Clarence Darrow, who defended the Darwinian concept of evolution.
