'Scopes monkey trial' town erects evolution figure's statue
AP Friday July 14, 2017

The famed "Scopes monkey trial" pitted two celebrity lawyers against one another, but only one was memorialized outside the Tennessee courthouse where the case unfolded -- until now.

On Friday, July 14 at the Rhea County Courthouse in Dayton the public will behold a 10-foot statue of skeptic Clarence Darrow, who argued for evolution. It will stand on the opposite side of the courthouse from a 2005 statue of William Jennings Bryan, the Christian defender of biblical creationism.

The trial garnered national headlines. Historians say it started as a publicity stunt for the small town.

Pockets of opposition in Dayton suggest many Christians still see evolution as clashing with their faith.

But the new statue hasn't drawn teeming crowds like the ones that forced some 1925 trial proceedings to be moved outdoors.

Fort Campbell says about 300 soldiers are returning Thursday to the post that sits on the Kentucky-Tennessee line. The returning soldiers are part of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Rakkasans," 101st Airborne Division.

While in Afghanistan, the soldiers focused on training, advising and assisting an effort to build the capacity of Afghanistan's army and police forces and to strengthen its national security and defense.

A welcome home ceremony is planned when the soldiers arrive.
