George Rappleyea (1894-1966) led a group of Dayton TN businessmen who convinced teacher John T. Scopes to openly violate Tennessee's 1925 law called the Butler Act, which prohibited the teaching of human evolution from earlier primates. The ACLU had been looking for a test case to challenge the state law. The trial, known as the Scopes Monkey Trial, was held in July 1925 and attracted national attention. Although Scopes lost and had to pay a fine, his conviction was overturned on a technicality, and the Butler Act was not repealed until 1967 after a different trial.
