The Monkey Trial A famous quote Great minds think alike In the small town of Hillsboro there wasnt much to think about that is the bible was the main source of the citizens There were laws to think otherwise such as the right to have your own opinion on how the world came to be To these people in the small town of Hillsboro the law was murder for any man or woman to speak the word of heresy about evolution There was such a man that stood up to the law His name was Bertram Cates The stage was set the courthouse was packed and the prosecution and the defense attorney were all seated in the sweltering courtroom The defense was Hennery Drummond and the prosecution was Mathew Brady At stake was the independence and capability to form your own ideas for every American The defendant was a schoolteacher that thought one day he would teach his class about the theory of evolution not knowing how drastic the town of Hillsboro would react The man was Bertram Cates and he was fighting a battle that no man had ever fought before It was the battle of religion vs evolution The scene was set and the odds didnt look good for Cates even though he had one of the best defense attorneys in the US He was up against a jury that has been raised on the term read your bible Once you have faith in religion you stick by it the rest of your life Mr Drummond had to convince a jury of twelve that had been taught to do what Jesus did in the bible and live the word of God And the people of Hillsboro had the whole city against Cates calling him a murder and a heretic and making the whole town against him Mr Drummond had all these witnesses to approach
