Primary Source #1: Scopes Guilty, Fined $100, Scores Law; Benediction Ends Trial, Appeal Starts; Darrow Answers Nine Bryan Questions

Deejay Scruggs's insight:

Annotation : This is a newspaper article on the Scopes Trial. The article is published by the New York TImes. The article is letting the public know that Scopes was found guilty and fined $100. Also in this article it talks about Byran being unable to give his speech that he been preparing.It brings up that Darrow felt that the crime was similar to witchcraft. Its shows that the audience laughed at the judge after making a remark at the end of the trial. I feel that he shouldnt be fined because he taught about evolution. Although, He did break the law i think he should have been sentenced a few days but not pay the $100.
