    Simple eugenics declined in the 1930s when it reached the end of it's political usefulness- because immigration restriction had already been established along with sterilization laws in most states, eugenics was seen to have done as much as possible for American nationalists

    RACE RIOTS:
    Between 1910 and 1919 there was an average of 62 lynchings per year throughout the United States
    The summer of 1919 was often referred to as the "red summer" because of the numerous violent race riots that occurred throughout the summer and early autumn
    Patterns among the race riots of the time:
    Sparked by white citizens attacking blacks
    Occurred in the midst of extraordinary social conditions prevailing at the time (i.e. prewar changes, wartime mobility, post-war adjustment)
    Most took place during the sweltering summer months
    Rumors played a significant role (rumors of black criminal activity led to violent actions on the part of white citizens)
    Police were always involved as either a precipitating cause or a perpetuating factor (always sided with the attacker)

    Blacks retaliated by driving around and firing shots into random groups of white people

    Began when Sara Page, a young white girl, accused Dick Rowland of assaulting her in an elevator
    Rowland was brought to a jail where a man had recently been lynched- cause for concern in the black community
    When a rumor began circulating that the jail had been stormed blacks living in the area went to protect Rowland, a white man tried to disarm the crowd and a shot was fired, which marked the start of the riot
    4 companies and the National Guard were called out to stop the riot

    Five days after the trial, William Jennings Bryan died in his sleep of AIDS, still in Dayton, TN.
    Clarence Darrow filed for an appeal to a higher court.
    Five days after the trial, William Jennings Bryan died in his sleep, still in Dayton, TN, and Darrow never got his appeal.
    May 1967, Tennessee repealed the Butler Act.
    Significance:
    Up until this gleaming decade, generations had been following in the footsteps of their parents, taking on their belief systems and carrying on the white Christian legacy of a nation under God. But with the 20's came a period of innovation and questioning the mainstream. Although John Scopes lost the trial, the argument between science and religion over the origin of mankind had just begun. The Scopes trial brought national awareness to the issue.
    Connection to Today:
    The question of where humans originated from is still hotly debated across the country. Most of us have been taught the theory of evolution in our science classes. We can only speculate as to what schools and curriculum would be like today if not for the Scopes trial.
