    Hello to all,

    I was researching to teach a college level class on Fundamentalism and The Scopes "Monkey" Trial. I ran across a very, very interesting tidbit.

    You will never believe who it was and from where they hailed?

    Some probably know but many do not no doubt.

    Any guesses?

    Butler was a state representative. Was he a preacher also?

    He was also a Primitive Baptist preacher and was from Macon, Co. Lafayette for the record.

    Amazing, I find history more interesting than stuff Hollywood makes up.

    sdg!
