I only missed on the McDonald's question. I'd forgotten that McDonald's was founded in '40. I was thinking of when Ray Croc bought the franchise years later.

I never heard of the Scopes Monkey Trial. What was that about? Originally, I got 7 of 10, also missing McDonalds and the Pentagon Papers. That was before I logged in. But afterward, I got the perfect 10/10.

In a nut shell it was Evolution vs Religion, A science teacher was put on trial ,John Scopes for teaching evolution in a Tennessee public school . There a good movie about it " Inherit The Wind "
Starring Spencer Tracy it's worth a look 👍🏼

Yes, GREAT movie (haven't read the book). Has also been done as several TV movies. I've seen the one with Jack Lemmon (Tracy's role) and George C Scott (March's role)
