The body of an unknown soldier - selected by Army Sgt. Edward F.

President Warren G. Harding officiated at the interment ceremonies.

1925 - By the time she was just 4 years old, in July, the Scopes Trial - often called the Scopes Monkey Trial - took place, prosecuting a substitute teacher for teaching evolution in school. Tennessee had enacted a law that said it was "unlawful to teach human evolution in any state-funded school". William Jennings Bryan headed the prosecution and Clarence Darrow headed the defense. The teacher was found guilty and fined $100. An appeal to the Supreme Court of Tennessee upheld the law but overturned the guilty verdict.

The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.

The worst epidemic of polio had broken out that year - in the U.S. there were 58,000 cases reported. Of these, 3,145 people had died and 21,269 were left with mild to disabling paralysis.

1988 - She was 67 years old when on December 16th, 1988 the popular film Rain Man was released.
