July 21, 1925, was the date that in Tennessee John Scopes was put on trial.
John Scopes was a science teacher who broke the law by teaching human evolution instead of creationism.
This trial was given a lot of media attention for both the reasons of protesting  Tennessee‘s Butler Act and because the trial attracted a lot of tourism and sold a lot of monkey themed merchandize.
