The worst of the Roaring 20's

The Eighteenth Amendment banned the sale, production, importation and transportation of alcohol. This amendment was the only amendment to have been repealed. This amendment was introduced to Congress by Republican Representative Henry Blair of New Hampshire in 1876.This amendment was a very bad decision because it lead to more crime, violence and hidden bars called "speakeasies".

The "Scopes Monkey Trial"gets its name from the 1925 court case involving Tennessee Biology teacher John Scopes, who decided to challenge a state law by teaching the theory of evolution (science) rather than the theory of creationism or fundamentalism (religion). He was arrested and his trial ensued, becoming one of the most famous trials of the 1900's. His lawyer was famous defense attorney Clarence Darrow, an agnostic, and he was pitted against prosecuting lawyer William Jennings Bryan, the famous orator from Nebraska, who was quite religious.Although Scopes lost his case, the controversy still exists today. This case showed the increasing conflicts of the Roaring Twenties as the "worst of times."
